How do you chop a Fiberglass Body?
I saw a Fiat Topilino back in the late 50s with an angled chop and fell in love. Since today a steel Fiat is very expensive and hard to find, a fiberglass body may be my best option.
I did a photo chop so you guys can see what I mean. Iím thinking starting with the chop done so I will have more top length would be best. The second photo chop shows basic cut lines on a chopped body.
So I guess my questions are:
How do I rejoin the cut parts? Maybe use steel straps and counter sunk screws then smooth surface. Lay a few fiberglass mats over the inside so the straps do not show?
What filler works best for the seams?
Or should I just hope to find a steel one?
