I am looking for examples of members here who have been able to bond the roof & rear quarter of the fiero. What materials were used, fiberglass? Type or types of bonding agents? and the process? Photos or thread links would be helpful.
So as far as the roof/rear panel you can use standard fiberglass & resin, or do you need a special resin?
You can use standard glass and resin for the surface, but I would reccomend using the 3m 3118 glue to do the bond of the 2 structures. make sure all the paint is off and the bonding surfaces are clean and paint free, also rough 80 grit paper would be good. the seam itself dig a channel in the fiberglass between the two panels kinda like if you cut a plate in half. Make the trough about 2 inches wide on each side of the seam tapering down lay in glass and resin in layers getting wider with each layer till you have it higher than the panels. let it cure overnight and sand smooth! then.......let it sit a few days to allow for shrinkage. after that a bit of bondo and sand and done fill prime and paint!
How many tubes did you need for the seam itself. I will have to also raise the rear roof panel just a bit to level it out.
If I remember right I used one tube, but also remember you have to dig a channel to lay the fiberglass in so don't forget that part and you will be doing mud work yet too along with fill primer and more sanding !
