Yeah, fibreglass is potent stuff. Ive just repaired some side skirts with it. So im assuming if you want an easy basic shape, you use lycra and the resin and hardener and keep sanding and shaping?

im no expert but yeh, ive learnt as Ive mucked around with it, I used lyrca because its more strecthier and still absorbs the resin.
i then used body filler, and now spot putty because no hardener is needed so its easier.

its almost finished now, i just gotta sand it, then paint it, will finish it tomorrow

YEah, you take the airbag out of the car, you wont have any insurance nor will the car be road worthy, Looks great though, But be wary about your PS2, mate of mine put his in the boot an one day while out the heat in the boot alone fried the thing, so magnified sun through a back window will probably kill it real quick

ill put pics up tomorrow.

Exterior looks awsome. That parcel shelf is well done. But the colouring in the cabin, not for me.

heres some pics
i did the vinyl myself, that why its so crap, the shape of the parcel shelf is very hard to convince the vinyl to go on it, because i couldnt shrink the vinyl in some places, it looks bubbly aswell. I will get it done in white leather when i get the seats done.
