Another FIBERGLASS DASH QUESTION

Hi
I have a 06 Dodge Charger and I want to fiber glass the dash.
I dont want t make molds or use lots of wood. I worked with fiberglass before but never applied it to a vinyl dash.

This is what Im thinking of dooing correct me if Im wrong lol
Take out the dash and remove all small components.
Somewhere in the middle and side frill few holes so resin sets in around the edge and helps it stay in place (2-3 sizes of bits just to try)
Strech the fleece over . Finish stapling middle parts so fleece stays next to the dash . I quess that will make a big difference when laying down resin.
Then put resin and let dry ,without the fiber glass ? will that work or it will be to fragile?
If I do put fiberglas I would use small patches first cris sros style to give it strenght, second and third layer bigger patches. Towards the sides of the dash (next to windshield and sides) use Small amounts of glass mat so fits good.
hmmm
Questions
Will it stick?
Can I just put resin over fleece or it needs few layers of glass mat ?

Ill post the current air ride and paint job pics on my site 220auto.com

dont use fleece use felt it takes the resin better and easyer to sand. wrap the whole dash with the felt, staple it and glue it in key areas. then soak it with resin and add two layer of glass. let that dry then sand the high spots and add two more layers do this till you find its strong enough. sand smooth and use filler to spead the whole thing then sand to the final shape.


easy as cake
good luck and take pics

I beg to differ... I have been waiting for DAYS for this forum to send me my registration...NOTHING! I tried using my wife's pc to register and they have not gotten back to her either.

I believe that their registration script must be broken. No telling how many people have tried to register, & perhaps they haven't a clue!
