The fiberglass for these mustangs is typically very bad on the outside and nasty on the inside.

The trunk took quite a while, the hood even longer. There was a lot of chopped and rough glass mat and resin to block through, so I could minimize the filler.

The idea I had was to do a mural on the inside of the hood and a smaller one on the underside of the trunk, in the future.

The good thing is that I am getting really good at dealing with pinholes, as there's a lot in the raw areas of the fiberglass. The bad thing, is that it has taken the best part of two months of intermitant nights.

I just hope that when it is all painted I will open up the hood and smile
That fiberglass you "blocked" through was probably "structural" ...note the key word "was"
