I was just wondering if it would be worth my time to build a set of fiberglass panels and hood, I work at a glassing shop, so i can for a fairly cheep price, its just alot of work. would it make much of a wieght difference? I know that the pannels are already light, so i need some oppinions, thanks.

Seems like I remember a couple of people on the board here looking for fiberglass for early A-body's. It might be worth your while to go into a part time specialty business. ;D Just a thought

That would be killer if you could make the 63 and 64 Valiant front fenders.  VFN sells some early A stuff and so does US Body(? I think that's the name of the place), but not all of it.

ok, so i am guessing that i should probably do it. how would i get them to bolt onto the frame? probably just glass some tabs in or something, then i have to get some aluminum square tube so it will hold shape at a high speed.

Do you have a web address or phone number for them? I did a google search but only found snare drum information.

Thanks,

Brad

That's where I got my hood from (VFN) and it took over 3 months to get it when they told me 6 weeks.  Then there were a rear bad low spot in the crown of the hood running down the center.  I was putting a scoop on anyways, but............
