fiberglass molding?
hello all!

I've been toying with idea of building a car an call it phantazime, to be like a roadster, and powered by a cadillac 472, what i'm wondering is anyone help me out on how i should do my fiberglass body build a metal frame an cover it with my glass or should do like big daddy an do a wood'en frame an cover it with glass, an like smaller parts should i get that green foam an shape it an cover it with glass, looking for ideas on this build, any help be welcome! thank you all here in hot rod land!

Phew! You have just asked for about 20 pages of info in one long, long, sentence. My advice would be to search this board for similar threads, read a few books, (How to build Fiberglass Hot Rods .., by Tex Smith is a good one) and come back and ask more specific questions when you know a bit more about what you want to do. Lots of info on this board.

Good luck.

BTW I think its a great idea to build a roadster -- I am doing it and using ALL of the methods you mentioned.
