Jay can you post some pictures of what got burned, Were you just going to leave it in gel coat, or paint it?

Perhaps there's glass guy on the board near Chicago, IL that can help us out?

Hey it's not the end of the world, there is not a person on here that has not had some kind of set back. It's not the end of the world, it's just a car. Like NEW INTERIORS said it should be an easy fix. Like I had told you, I had to use 15 gals of resin on mine, and lots of glass, and I didn't have a fire. Just be glad the whole car didn't burn up, or worse yet someone didn't get hurt. Fire isn't one that I would be the one that put me down. Glass is pretty easy to work with and you will more than likely have some do overs but I think there is enough people on here that have worked with it, that will get you by. So read a street rodder or rod and custom or start cleaning up the car to do some repair work, but don't let it get you down, like I said before, it was made by man it can be remade by man.

Jay, Not sure if you remember that my willys had a hole burnt through the roof and also the top of the door..It was a little work but a easy fix.. Fiber glass is very easy to do.. There's a lot here that will help as much as we can.. Like it was said ; Man made it.. and a man will fix it.. It will all work out.. Hang in there..

Here's the damage:





There's more in my gallery at photobucket. You can edit anyone of the picture links above to get there, but this is about the worst of it. The driver's side door post had fiberglass around it prior to the fire, but I really don't have the time to learn how to be a good glass guy. As it is, I work 30 hours a day in the IT field, so I need some external help here.

Just out of curiosity, can I reuse my existing rivets by fiberglassing around them or do I have to drill them out and redo them all over again?

Jay K.

ps. I've already contacted my welder to discuss the strength of the welds in that area post fire and await his on site review.

Well it looks like it is all in the Q-panel area the inside is no problem at all. it needs to be sanded down and see how much glass is left. The top of the opening will have to be sanded to get those rough spots off, and more than likely put some glass there, to build it back up. I can't get a very good view of the quarter panel , are there holes burnt though, if so that might be a little harder if you have a big open space and have to fill it to the right shape, but it will still have to be sanded down to get rid of the burnt glass. I will let others step in here , they might have a better , or easier way but I think you need to get the burnt glass off first and clean that up before you get ahead of yourself. I would Hope that the welds were good otherwise I would worry about them all.

Jay... I would start by grinding ''everything that is burnt no matter how much you have to grind out, And no matter how big of a hole you have to make.. You want to be sure you go far enough to get to good glass.. The big holes Is no big deal.. Once you get Reid of the bad stuff.. If you have a hole.. You can use anything that is flat to put behind the hole.. I like to cover it with duct tape..That way it will come off easy later.. You just want this there to glass against..Bevel all around the hole..Out about 2''.. Don't cut your chop mat.. You don't want a striate edge on you filler piece.. Tear all of your pieces.. That way you won't see a line after you finish... It will look like you never fixed it..If you have any problem.. Give me a call.. I can tell you better then I can wright.. If you don't still have my #.. Pm me..

Randy I think it's Randy, the only trouble with putting something behind it on a Street beast is I think he has the inner liner in it. and I thought that I saw a picture of the trunk all filled in, if there isn't a way to remove one or the other, unless he cuts one out, he will not be able to remove what ever he puts on the backside of the hole. That's why I said the hole might be a little harder. I agree with everything else, but I would bevel and put at least 12" wide strips the length of the hole, once the hole is filled and the glass dry it should be easier.

Mr. Bob.. I think the inner piece is removable.. If not it doesn't matter if he takes it out or not.. But if he wants he can make the piece a little bigger then the hole, Make the piece on a piece of glass,, Once it get's hard pop it off the glass.. Trim it to fit in the hole.. But make sure you bevel the hole and the piece.. Make like a ditch all the way around the two piece's.. Put a piece of duct tape to hold it into place.. Glass a couple of small spots just to hold it into place.. Then remove the tape, And glass the ditch closed all around.. Sand smooth, Then there's no more hole.. There's a lot of ways it can be done.. This is only one..
