I'm thinking of changing some of my damaged interior parts with fiberglass replacements. How hard is it to make fiberglass parts? Are there any write-ups anyone has on the subject? I'm always more of a do-it-yourselfer and would like to do it one day when I'm bored and have nothing to do. Is it possible for me to do it or should I pay someone else to do it?

fixing damaged parts it easy, lil bit for figerglass on the back side with resine and bondo the front and send smooth. basicly with fiberglass u lay out a piece of fiberglass and dab the resin on, not speard it.

go to your local crafts store, pick up some plaster, make a mold. Line the mold with foil and masking tape. Mix up some resin , apply the fiberglass. Then pop out fiberglass, slap on some bondo. Sand it down, primer and paint it. Then you got yourself some new parts. Probably take a good few days to complete. Make sure you do all the parts at the same time, its alot easier.
