Fiberglass molds
#1
Anyone here ever mess around with making their own fiberglass parts by making a plug, then a mold, then a final piece? Just curious on what methods work the best. I'm going to possibly be making some one-off interior pieces.

O..I have made many many one off parts ..(I've been a modeler since longer than I've been doing cars) The way you make the mold depends on the size & shape of the part. Here's the most common way of making the MOLD..http://www.cstsales.com/tutorials/fiberglass_mold.pdf
& here's a good paper on plug construction..http://www.fibreglast.com/product/LC_013
The last few plugs I made were done with pink or blue foam carved to shape..a layer or 2 of glass cloth with epoxy..finish to final contour with bondo..primer..wet sand..polish..

Thanks for the links, great info!!! Not sure how crazy I wanna get with this yet, but it will definitely be something. Without going too overboard, I was thinking of an entire dash, just need to come up with a design for it.

Any ideas?
