Bonding Fiberglass To Metal

Thank you for the direction Baddbob. I will do the search that you are suggesting. If nothing else such an activity will help me to learn how to take full advantage of this website.

baddbob Do a search for fiberglass scoop install, this was brought up and hashed out awhile back. I can type up the proceedure but it would take awhile. Fusor makes and excellent adhesive for this but the part also needs to be blended in with mat and resin, fillers, and primer. Bob

matt167 I need to know how to bond fiberglass to metal myself. my '67 Falcon had/ has 1 rotten out rear wheel well, nobody makes repo 1/4's for it, and a original will cost 3-600 from a place like desert valley or memory lane, so I got out some renyolds release tin foil, duct taped it neatly to my other side 1/4 panal ( is still in tact but marginilly rough ), got out some fiberglass putty and fiberglass cloth, carfully laid it over the tin foil, and puttied it up good, and let it dry, I now have a fiberglass patch panal ( reversed but it will work for a driver ) that I don't know how to attach, it lines up and fits ok, but I don't know how I should attach it, I was thinking scuff the metal mating surface and use my fiberglass putty over it, then stick it on and let it dry, but I want to make shure it will hold. ideas please?

Bonding Fiberglass To Metal

I am considering mounting my pro street air scoop that presently sits on top of the carburetor to the top of the hood so that the two look like one piece. I want to fab the scoop in however so that it is functional, ie hole in the hood to let the air through. I am then going to duct from the underside of the scoop directly into the carburetor.

MARTINSR Don't know who you are looking for but bonding glass to metal is pretty standard practice. What is the exact project you are doing?

Corvettes used a simple "panel adhesive" to bond door skins and body panels to the metal structure.

Bonding Fiberglass To Metal

Does anybody know how to get in touch with the guy who did the Dragon project that is posted on the sight? In his project history and pictures he makes a brief comment about how he joined fiberglass to metal with success. Or, can anybody tell me the process? I have an idea for my '32 Pro Street which will require a metal to fiberglass bonding process be employed.
Thanks in advance for any assistance that can be provided
