It may help if you post what year truck your's is and what level trim it is. I know in the NBS there are the LS and up level trim panels and then there are the work truck and SL versions. One of them is just hard plastic that can easily be sanded/primed/painted. Give us some more info and maybe we can help you out.

If you've got the base model door panels with just the one speaker in the door, then you just need to sand and smooth the texture out of the plastic. No fiberglass is required to slick the door panels out. I think there's a sticky at the top of the forum that explains the process pretty decently, which could point you in the right direction. If not PM me and I can lay it out pretty detailed to you.

Sorry "dude" but you never said you were glassing in new pods or shaving anything. As for getting it to stick use a lay down a layer of a product made by Evercoat called FiberTech. It is designed to stick to ABS plastic that's been roughed up with 36 grit paper. Then you can lay down your fiberglass over the Fibertech and those two products will bond together since they are like compounds. Ask more specific question, get more specific answers...it's that easy.
