    I don't like using foil. It often sticks to the glass. Also it's not adhesive so the foil doesn't stick while your working with it. Just use masking tape. Two layers.

    You put the tape over the foil..(newbs)

    the foil is in case anything would get through the tape.

    Seriously? Newb? I'm offended! Dude I've been doing this a long time...... If you do two layers of tape (I recommend that you do the second layer perpendicular to the first layer) it won't soak through. Well, unless you use the blue painters maksing tape. It's really absorbent and will soak it through.

    The foil doesn't stick and can cause problems IMO>

    Since all it is is a mold you should be able to just foil and tape over it then fiberglass it, and as long as you have the same shape, ur in bussiness.
    Only thing is the brackets and what not that hold it to the car, you will need some way to secure it. but other than that i would say if it's too big ur fine since you can sand away, but if your to small you have to glass back over that piece.

    Re: I was wondering if this would work...

    well if i did it in the inside, would it be hard to fiberglass the brackets that hold it in place?

    also how many layers would be good? the think looks presttye thick from the side view?

    dont know what you mean by inside? The car?, no, it wouldn't matter, i dont think

    But You might be able to by some that are similar and attach them to your glassed dash, or take the ones off of ur stock dash if you dont plan on keeping it, or go to the junk yard and pull some from there.
    I mean you have alot of options.

    I've heard 7 layers for a box, so idk 7. I mean 7 layers is pretty strong, if your just trying to make it thick use some cloth.

    Are you sure you need to fiberglass it? A lot of the stuff you see in custom dash work isnt' glass. It's mdf or bondo or some other material.
