here's a thought. what about just making the shell in fiberglass too. when it comes to the front, it's a lot easier to cut and move the wheel wells on the glass part than to do all the steel mods. you can just make the molds for the front as is. make a part, then just keep making the section behind the front wheel to the cowl and glass it to the part. this is how i am going to make the parts for my '66 dart awb drag car i will be building.
