Lotsa lo end body mfg's use waaaay tooo much resin, causing the problems your buddy is having.
A quality body won't smell, expand or contract after 72 hrs of cure time.
None of mine ever get Baby motors, or bucket seats.
Re: the ground issue, if ya build em right with a good ground buss you'l never have a problem.
The paint problem he's having is related to PPP (piXX poor prep)
Probably 1 of those P.O.S outta Mission Kansas.
Have had the very unfortunate opportunity to rework a couple of those over the years.
I have two friends with a Wescott and a Gibbons body. BOTH of them smells ... after sitting in the sun all day @ a car show. Even Gibbons and Wescott tell you not to paint your fiberglass body a dark color.

Like I said ... if 1bad32 wants a N&N body ... he should pull the trigger and get one. He just should KNOW what He is buying before hand
