    Making progress on Firebird flared fenders, been at it for months found an hour tonight to get some mud on it so it can be final shaped, then gets a couple coats of latex to seal them, so molds can be pulled.

    You should have let me know, I have molds for some of this stuff. Good luck, fiberglass is nasty stuff. Also molds warp and warp over time, I have replaced my RS nose most 4 times in 11 years! cool stuff, got to be worlds better than that chuckle head in Canada (show cars international) I think. Be safe and suit and mask up. I do my layups outside as well.

    you have molds for VSE flared fenders? I have a full set of "new" VSE(Herb Adams) flared fenders that I bought last fall, they are 40 years old and shrunk about 1/4"-3/8" so I'm just making my own.
    BTW that Show car dude advertised on Ebay Firebird fenders and in his pic he showed a VSE fender, but he never responded when I asked if the fenders he was selling were the VSE
