Laid some more cloth strips and resin today! grin
had to cut some strips outa some left over stuff....

Cloth is easy to cut when ya put maskin tape down then cut up middle of tape,It keeps your edges tight and leaves taped edge for next time!....



Still got little more clothin to do,then will sand and paint inside of door,then I can flip it over and do finish side! Till next time! cheers

Looking great. What did you end up doing with the 2 solid doors you made the template from?

Thanks for taking to time to post the updates. I learned a lot about fiberglass! The wood looks great on the dash, such a simple upgrade. And ya really get a big bang for your buck.

Looks good. Question, how do you finish off the edge of the door? It's loose mat isn't it? Do you just resin over that and sand it down?

I like to "extend" the matt over edge a little Ken,and soak it good with resin,then when the 5 layers of matt gets hard I cut it off with saw,and it leaves a solid pc of glass,Im givin a brush coat of resin to bare end also,then little sand and heavy primer....
Here cut off...an strip that was cut off

After little resin and sandin an paint looks "Sweet" cheers

I like what you are doing so far. I think you could stay busy for a while making mid-Dodge gullwings! I know I have planned on getting a side one for a long time now myself. For cutting material we always use a good pair of shears (basicly giant scissors). The ones I have are about a foot in legnth and will run you about 50 bucks, but they are awesome! (and made for this) Keep up the great work.
