    Fiberglass Dash parts

    Do I have to do anything different in order to fiberglass onto plastic such as a trim bezel? I am fluch mounting a DVD screen into the dash of my 97 Mustang and will use the trim bezel as part of the frame.
    I have never fiberglassed before but, after reading many writtings, threads, pictorials, discussions...ect on how to do it ,I believe i have a pretty good idea.
    If anyone has any advice on my particular install i would greatly appreciate it.

    (P.S. here is a link to a page that shows how I would like to install the screen http://www.caraudiomag.com/v_feature...ang/index.html )

    You will need to scuff the plastic pretty well with some 40 grit sandpaper. Then clean the plastic well. And get to glassing.

    leave it scuffed
    fiberglassing is not as easy as it looks. if i were u i would start on something small not my dash!
    cause if u **** up it aint coming out and every1 is going 2 see it.
    try fiberglassing a box etc. then when u get a feel for fiberglassing move 2 ur car
    when its done it should look tight! good luck!
