I didn't see those pictures, so what you said is right, I would make the glass in the hole as thick as the glass around it.

Bob and Randy,

I appreciate both of you guys!

Yes, the side panels inside the street rod are not glassed in yet. In that respect, I consider us very lucky! We'll be starting up work this week to ***** the damage and take better pics.

Thanks again Gents,

Jay K.

Jay, that damage can be repaired, fiberglass is very forgiving and is easy to work with once you get into it. Don't give up

Jay I'll let Randy take the lead, he's 20 years younger than me and can work harder, if that's ok with him. I will put my 2 in once in awhile

Not sure what has been edited out, but I sure as heck wasn't cursing.

I believe I typed "f i x the damage". No worries we need to get in the garage and review!

It seems that we have serious 'glass issues that would involve cutting, removing and reforming a new section that would require a new mold for all of the damaged fiberglass. That kind of requirement is clearly beyond my father's and my collective abilities at this time. The talent required for fiberglass is rapidly becoming a dying art as Corvettes are now fabbed out of Plastic and not fiberglass anymore. I didn't know that!

Hey Randy,

If you ever feel like making a road trip up North, holler at this Yankee that you're coming and we'll figure it out!

Thank you all again,

Jay K.

I really don't think it's as bad as it looks it would be better if you had all the burnt stuff out of there then you would know for sure if you need molds or not, but when I was doing my body I was Just cutting and re-fiber glassing, I never had mold one. If you can get a good size roll of glass about 18" wide and the resin, some fiberboard that you can bend, and lots of wax paper, you can make a mold out of the thin fiberboard put the wax paper on it so the glass doesn't stick to the board and you start . You only need that if you have to take all the glass out, or if there are big holes. You need a fiberglass roller also as you need to roll all the bubbles out of it.
but first get rid of all the burnt glass before you spend any money on a body you don't need. You can get the other stuff later. When you take the gel coat off, do it with a sandpaper that will rough the surface up enough so it will hold bondo.

Jay Randy's right, what we both see is a little damage to a Quarter panel the inside and a little on the body, by the trunk, You don't worry about the gel coat, you don't have to worry about the inside as much, you will cover that with the interior. Like I said save your money, if you find a body you will more than likely not get just the body but the whole car, then you end up with a frame and what ever. For now just start getting rid of the burnt glass, and whatever you do , don't let some shop tell you that it can't be done or that you can't do it. AS far as I know there are still a lot of different users of fiberglass , and you are not working on a vette with a composite body.


Randy nice ride.

bob

Jay I would come down there but my wife has cancer, and it's hard to get away, she's doing good but I have over 30 surgeries , and she stuck by me so I should stick around.

Bob,

I'd be honored to have either of you guys help my Dad and I out

That said, family's first and more important than anything else. I'll definitely say a prayer or two for both you and your wife.

God Bless,
Jay K.
