My window was removed but I could have done it with it in place. I just wanted to get the stucture done while the car was in mock up stage. I did not want to be doing any glass after I the paint was done..

Here is the first layer of glass






Its rough but hey for a first attemt its not to shabby and plus thats why Im going to do a second layer and a skim coat of bondo for right. I read that if you mix the resin in with the bondo that it will make it easier to spread is this true or was that person on crack?

ah the weight of the dash wont make that much of a difference if its got everything on it that he needs. put some lighter seats in and you easily make up for the weight as the factory seats weigh a TON. by the way the dash is starting to look good man. good job. hope to start on mine soon but i just got the engine fired up so i gotta tune it and get everything straight.. then maybe start on the dash. its lookin nice though man.
