fiberglass dash

I plan on redoing the dash in my 1985 Pontiac Fiero GT. I was never a fan of the way the dash looked, so I designed quite a few different dashes on autocad. I plan on using fiberglass...but I have a few questions...

How much more would it cost and how much harder would it be to do the dash in carbon fiber as opposed to fiber glass?

How much would it cost me to do my dash in fiberglass? Should I make a wood frame and then do fleece over it to make it more sturdy?

This will be my first time fiberglassing. Also, I plan on integrating a GPS screen into the dash and getting rid of the map pocket and making an actual glove box. How hard do you think this would be? Also, I would need to plan out where all of the brakets would need to be for the instruments and controls to hook up to wouldn't I? Any help would be great, thanks.
