Fiberglass and composite parts are commonly used in many collector cars, hot rods, Corvettes and even late-model vehicles. Body panels, interior components, and engine parts are fabricated from Fiberglass and composite materials (plastic molded or carbon fiber). While other fiberglass and composite material books have been published, few are focused on fabricating and repairing automotive parts, and this book concentrates on completing common and advanced projects at home in your garage.

How to Fabricate Automotive Fiberglass & Carbon Fiber Parts shows you how to use glass strand mat, woven fiberglass cloth, carbon fiber cloth, and hybrid fabrics for particular applications. The strength of these mats and ideal uses are covered in detail. The book also shows how to correctly mis the typical resins (polyester, epoxy), hardeners and gels. Core materials, such as wood, foam, and honeycomb Nomex, are often used to add strength to various parts. All the relevant tools, including mixing containers, holding containers, saws, scissors, files, and shaping tools, are discussed. Constructing wood patterns to exacting standards from wood, Formica, aluminium, and other materials is essential and covered in detail.
