Exclamation Good vs Bad fiberglass

I was just on Ebay and found this for sale...It shows just how bad a fibergalss replica can be if NOT done right...I just cant get over the distortion on that piece! If you look at the centre you can see just how bad it is. This is the result of "quick" work and easy $$$. A good mold should be constructed in one week, and let to cure for one more week before use. Some places do it overnight! As far as the parts, most places make 4-5 per day....but really anything more then 1 per day would be of low quality.

Good thing you are not a bodyman! lol That first one is clearly off....and the paint on the red one looks like that because of the reflection of the light...not a single run because it was spray painted! lol (very hard to make runs with a can, unless you hold it 2" form the surface!!!)...

Sure, but it has to be off the car, not ****ed up by someone who doesnt know what he was doing...

Just in case you want to show pics of your masterpiece, you should look at how the kit fits now on Djtbster's car...Very far from what you had...
