ffas23- You're story is believed by me. I have heard the same from a few others who have had the time, experience and resources to build a decent car, that you like, from a CMC kit.


Later, mikey

Agreed. Southwest Rod and Custom is out near Dallas, Tx. and is a supporter of SB, obvious by the information at the end stating to contact a SB rep. by name.

I watched two of those videos and had to stop. I was horrified when I saw the recommended procedure for securing the floor pan to the frame and the body to the floor pan.

The person in the video used pop rivets to secure the floor pan to the frame then used screws to secure other parts to the frame. A single layer of fiberglass secured the body to the floor pan.

I could go on for days about how unsound this all is. This is not a 20 MPH go cart on a closed track! This is a multi thousand pound vehicle driving at highway speeds and the driver is unaware that his life is in peril. Fortunately, most of these kits never get completed.

When fiberglassing, its a good idea to grind off the gel coat,before doing the glassing,,,, other wise it dosn't stick very well,, and will soon come apart,

something this PROFESSIONAL expert did not do,

It is actually worse than that. Polyester resin is not adhesive. After grinding, he should have used a 5:1 epoxy resin which is adhesive , built up in multiple layers cleaning between layers to remove the amine blush.

ffas23, no need to be defensive. I wrote what I wrote based on my observations of a poor technique and not to convince you of anything. It is not about you. I look at the body to frame connection here like tying up a boat to a dock. Making 30 bad knots instead of six good ones isn't the right way or the safe way to do it.

I do not believe this is correct. New applications of polyester resin will melt into older applications, effectivly becoming one.

I don't agree with this,If you grind the gel coat off then wipe the old glass with acetone the new glass will bind,I use this procedure all the time,with good results,,If the old glass has wax in it,It need's to be grind first then wiped with acetone,Then start glassing..
