Hey,

I was looking though the Mustang Plus Catalog last night and began to wonder what kind of finishing do their fiberglass parts need? Lets say I buy the 3in hood and their R model racing apron, which im planning on getting, what would i need to do to mount them and get them to look good on the car. I know i could have called them, but I rather have asked you guys since Im not going to be getting them too soon.

Thanks

Fiberglass parts are notorious for being really rough when you get them. They usually need a lot of filling primer and block sanding to get out ripples and molding marks.

I have one of their r model aprons for use with a bumper for a 67-68. once I got one that molded properly, it took about 2 hours of labor to be prepped for paint and installed. It was only minorly (is that a word?) wavy, the longest part was deciding how to make the cut for the hood latch support. If I wasn't so anal, my buddy probably could have had it done in a couple minutes. The surface prep wasn't hard or really that much work.
as always, YMMV
