I am not a glass guy or body guy but I did all the fiberglassing that needed to be done myself. Don't see where you would need to hire someone to do it. Whats the problem? Go and get yourself a fiberglass kit with a gallon of Resin,hardener and extral fiberglass cloth, both types. At what stage are you with your car? The only problem I really encountered with my car was aligning the doors once I had the frame welded up and both doors lined up, drilled and tapped. One person can not align the doors himself but if you have help you should be good to go. Funny when I think of it and look back at pictures I had paint sticks in between the doors and jambs to help with alignment with plenty of Duct Tape holding the doors into the jambs so they would not fall out. Almost lost one of the doors falling back out being I had no help in this precedure but was able to get the holes drilled and tapped in the doors. I recommend at least 2 people in doing this. Don't do it the way I did if you can help it.
