bolt on scoops

i have a 68 mustang fastback. i bought the same scoops from the same people, very well mades, i had to do some sanding to match to the body. I also bought some roof side scoops from another person on ebay, they were paper thin, they were elinor scoops for molding, i decided to thicken the uppers with more glass and glassed in wood to hold bolt fastners. I will seam seal the scoops to the body along with using the fastners. I have never saw fiberglass stick to metal very long wthout cracking. I am not trying to make them look molded in, but I believe it will still make a statement.

Neither Kitty Hair, fiberglass resin, or body filler will properly bond a fiberglass scoop to metal. Even if you leave the bolts in, it's going to crack along the seams, nine times out of ten.

I use two-part epoxy structural type adhesives. With proper surface prep, and the correct adhesive, you have to use a grinder to remove the fiberglass part! It is permanently bonded.

I don't have the time right now to look through my suppliers and add links, but I'll try to get them posted here as soon as I can.

sweet. okay i will look into that stuff...the guy selling the scoops just responded back and said they could come WITH bolt or without so i figured might as well come with bolts and i could probably also use the panel adhesive if it comes to that.....
