i need to build a mold for my fiberglass dash, i attempted to use wood but i couldn't really get it the way i wanted it so i went out and bought like a case of spray foam but my problem is now that the foam doesn't stay where i want it to. my dad was talking to a friend at work and he said he just went out and bought a big block of foam and cut it so it would fit into place then cut out w/e shape he wanted it to look like. tell me what u guys think.

do a search for this guy.steve cornells impala.pretty sure its on cardomain it is very explained in detail.making the skeleton frame,pulling the flece,applying resin and bondo,and then wala.you cover it or get it covered.do it yourself save alot of money most in labor.flece and resin is cheap.

I did my trunk similar to his.its a pretty simple process once yo get the hang of it.just takes a while.you could do a dash the same way .if you wanted curves just have to strecth the fleece the shape you want it to go.mabey have to add or remove some material.you could also try a proudct called milled fiber its basically the mat ground up into a crystal forum.you then add to the resin to make a paste to your thickness then you can form it.really dont know if anything im telling you will work for your dash just a thought.

Are you trying to make a mold of your dash, or a you trying to conform your dash into something to add stuff into the dash, like pods and things like that. If you want a mold, enusre that you have some plyable, like plasic to cover you dash before you start to work with Fleece and resigns, But once you get all the wrinkles an bad conformities out of the dash mold, then you will be able to lay down a good mold of your dash, maybe I am nuking it.

NOT THAT ANYBODY CARES, BUT THIS IS THE MURAL I'M HAVING PUT ON MY HOOD.
ON THE DASH I'M THINKING ABOUT PUTTING "THE WORLD IS YOURS"
AND UNDERNEATH "MAKE WAY FOR THE BAD GUY"
ALSO JUST THE PICTURE NOT THE FRAME OR THE WORDS. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
