Re: I Really need your Opinions and Experience
Had the same problem with my 83. I fiberglassed the floor with matting and resin I bought at Pep Boys. I also need a new body, but I'm trying to hold off for a while. I am going to go with a steel body.
Everything on fiberglass needs it's own ground or some sort of ground bar. Also, anytime you screw something new on the body, you would need to put a nut on the backside...no self tapping screws here. Make sure there are provisions for seat belt mounts and the rear tire carrier if you have one that mounts to the body. I can bang a dent out of metal, not so sure about the fiberglass. These are just some of my thoughts on the idea even though I have never owned a glass body.
I would check with the manufacturere as far as fitament of parts goes.
Good luck with whichever path you choose!
