I got the low pro airfilter on and I still needed room. So I made some by cutting up the hood of the camaro. I also install my new coilover springs and mounted my ele fuel pump.

I hate fiberglassing but it will look good when I'm done.

i'm just asking to ask but when you glassed your hood did you use any material or matting? it "looks" like it is just resin? if you used material...cool...carry on don't mind me. but if you just used a lot of resin, then it will brake loose and or have a crack around the seam. resin by itself dries and becomes brittle the material with resin in it is what makes a strong hold on the seams. aslo using a little Dura-glass will beef it up and rage gold body filler to top it off and you will be set. (i do a lot of glass work so i was just trying to help out). when i glass i get my piece of material soaked threw and threw i gently use a bondo yellow paddle and run down the piece to remove the excess resin, and also overlap all the joints.

all in all this is really nice build and CAN'T wait to see it tearing up the mud!!

Trust me I understand why you ask the question. Lol. Yes I used some of the heavy woven mat and layed the resin on thick so I could sand it down smooth. If you look real close you can see the outline of one of the pieces of mat at the front of the scoop. So you think I should some dura-glass and rage? I was going to sane, glass again, sand and use filler. How much easier and or better are Dura-glass and rage? Thanks for the help.

Badass build man. I was looking at those painless switch panels for my build but the price forced me to look elsewhere. I found 12voltguy and his kickass custom switch panels are badass and easy on the pocketbook for what your getting. Just letting you know for next time around! Keep on workin!

I know its not for show... But if you knock it down some to the material, duraglass is a fiberglass type filler, it has fiberglass hairs mixed in it and works just like a bondo as far as mixing goes, but also a little tougher and gives a minimal flex. Once it is dry it has a more rugged texture, so a body filler of sort will help fill in the pin holes and crevesus. I use rage because it knocks off easier when block sanding, if you cant get rage mix a laqour thinner with bondo and it will thin it out causing it to knock off easier and lay thinner, it can also setup quiker so experiment away... But overall if you leave too much resin it will break eventully break loose and have a crack around the seam.... Like I said its not a show piece, but incase your picky like me on YOUR work, then there you go....

I dig the project either way!!! Looks great and keep up the work!

Yeah, Never be afraid to try anything as long as you have considered safety first. Build things you like, don't follow the crowd.

Wish I went to welding school lol.
