No worries Craig, I’m glad I could help.

I’d never used fibreglass before and learnt a lot from reading other build threads.

In particular, the way Chris and Dan @ Tribute built their cars from scratch was a big help to me.

Another former trick is using some cling film.

In this case, I’d wrapped it over some shaped insulation foam to make a bonnet ‘bulge’.



The fibreglass matting goes on as before.



It can then be separated after the fibreglass has set.



I made a few, OK, quite a few, mistakes as I learnt how fibreglass worked.

But once you get the hang of it, it does allow you to make any shape you want.

Good luck, Paul.
