YES YES YES YES

Did I mention YES?

Definately reinforce your quarters liberally with fiberglass unless you want your them to look like this! (look carefully at the pinstripe)



Also make sure you have new body mounts, and have plenty of reinforcement in front of the rear wheel hump since thats where alot of the flexing takes place. I learned the hard way on that one :twak:

just be sure to get some poly urethane body mounts and you'll be fine with that wrap n' all, i would not fiberglass it with a wraped frame...

you can use fiberglass but even better is some sheet metal.

if you use fiberglass use hair and screen material to reinforce it.
