That's the way Ed Roth made his show cars (Mysterion, Road Agent, Beatnik Bandit, etc). He would spend hours making a pefect plaster male model of the body then lay the 'glass over the top of the smooth plaster. Then he pounded the plaster out and spent countless hours smoothing off the rough fiberglass surface. Give me a female mold anyday!!
