WOW. This video is awsome. I was a autobody man for years and you have done an EXCELLENT job. I've wanted to start building custom auto interiors and this is one of the best fiberglass work information I have seen in years. Thank's for sharing.

well thank you very much! I am actually going to be doing some custom door panels on my '65 Impala this spring, so I'll be putting up another video you might like pretty soon!

Thank you! Glad I could help
After the felt, when you are putting the fiberglass resin over it, are you also applying any actual fiberglass sheets, or are you only putting the resin on?

Since I used the MDF as a support behind the fleece, there's no need to add fiberglass. If your project can't have a backing in it like MDF, then you would need to reinforce with fiberglass cloth or mat. If possible, do this from behind as opposed to on the front. That way there is less bodywork to do, and less detail will be lost

Ah, beautiful. Thanks!

We're working on a 78 fiat spider and I am definitely going to use this for a better looking dash! Thank you, great video!

It looks easy on your video. Question, how easy is to do this for the first time?

Awesome video!

This was my second time, so I think anyone can do this. I don't work with these materials very often either. It's a SLOW process, but nothing about it is very hard.

very nice. ... and I dig the use of the soda-can bottom for the middle socket.
Well done! Nice video, simple technique, and good-looking project in the end.
