Fiberglass molding?

1190 9
Is it possible to mold a fiberglass pan? This pan looks so clean, but I have to have a molded pan.

u can absolutly do it,they use an automotive grade epoxy to bond it together. when it is plastic to plastic it can be just as good as welding but plastic or fiberglass to metal is obviously not as strong, but can be done

epoxy both the front and the back of the seams and u will be ok,ive seen it done a hundred times and last a long time,just as long as u dont plan to hit any hard side-to-side action., this is how they shave doors and such on cars that are full of plastic

I've seen a few 88-98 Fleetsides with molded pans. I would worry it'd crack still, find a good body man. They'll probally want to charge you out the ass to mold it in though. What about the new Sir Mikes pans? I really like them.
