    thanks, i try to do things that look good yet something that someone else hasnt done...they have a few cars around with a dash like mine, prolly 2 so i had to take the next step and smooth the airbag over...the rear dash, i havent seen anyone with a molded 3rd brake like and and painted to match...just have to be different...as for the sills that another one where i havent seen anyone take the time to do that, however my friend done a reverse, he didnt do the sills, he had his whole floor fiberglassed and painted to match

    It would be cool to see a fiberglassed floor.

    got a lil accomplished today, but between work, the heat, rain and time It wasnt much

    sanded the resin down to prep for filler.

    heat cured my filler to fast so i didnt cover everything i wanted

    sanded that down. still has a bunch of imperfections my phone didnt pick up. i laid down some more filler and then it started raining to so i put it up and went home...got a lot more sanding and filling to do before primer and paint

    I would really enjoy learning the secrets of fiberglass.

    My cracked dashboard disappoints me.

    its actually really easy, if you were to do your dash you need 1 special tool. just a roller with metal wheels, you run over the cloth, mat whatever you used to press it down on the dashboard and get the air bubbles out. other than that i would say grind out the cracks, fill it with either resin or if you have milled fiberglass that would be better. then lay a few layers of fiberglass cloth down.

    the worst part of all of it is the sanding and im not talking about itching, that doesnt bother me at all. its just lots of labor sanding over and over

    got a lil done this morning, sanded the filler from friday, added some more where needed, sanded that...got lot left, theres a low spot in the bottom middle area of the brake light cover that i need to build up. a few pin holes need to be filled and smoothed out...slowly getting there...put a coat of primer on to see any imperfections when i sand on it.
