hey guys i have a fibreglass body kit on my el, now tonights a little rainy with the weather and my older brother asked if i was going to put my car under the house out of the rain, i said i wasn't but he said the rain would ruin the fibreglass, so is this true or jsut a wives tail?

Cheers Mitch

do you have paint over the bog? Filler's hydroscopic - it draws moisture out of the air - having it under the house will help a bit but the air will still be moist if its raining..

Oh, and as for fibreglass, if it couldn't go in the rain Corvettes would have serious limitations....
