I used to work for a few different custom shops here in Indianapolis a few years back as an installer, fiberglass tech. Here's a few of projects I've worked on will. Some are all my work and some we're joint installs with myself and coworkers. So here are a few of my favorites. I am uploading a lot of photos and they are mixed in so these are the ones that are finished uploading, i used to work on whatever paid the bill, I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but I loved what I did. The customer base was just a little too dangerous for my taste so now I just work on my own personal stuff and buddy's cars. I will post a few more pics later tonight when I get off of work.

Yea to this day that is one of my favorite cars I've ever worked on or driven. It was Procharged custom wide body kit, customt 12inch wide rear wheels. Not an inch on that car that wasn't touched in some way.

Not exactly my style, but I can definitely appreciate the craftsmanship. Wish I would work with fiberglass that well.

Thanks I learned when I was 16 open summer I just showed up to a custom shop and he was glossing and I never left. I have been trying to learn about carbon fiber and epoxy for a couple years but I never seems to work out for me, at least not to me I like it perfect

You would be correct. when customers are asking for hidden compartments installed a red flag seems to go up. Cash payments no more than $9999.99 lol

Its always nice to find someone who knows it. Only a handful of people that I know do it anymore


We do a different sort of work, though I have the skills to do what you do, I just don't like it as much during because its frustrating haha. I build boats for a living

Well the fact that you have the skills to do something if you want is cool enough. I've fixed a few boats for a couple people at my new job but just interior cosmetic stuff I tell them I'm not touch the main structure because I don't know much about the specs of boats.

Yea I'm doing a rear seat delete with a custom subwoofer box in its place, and I am going todo a few other small things on the interior. And I need to get some extra center console parts and I think I am going to mockup a new console. My main focus is to get the body in good shape before it goes to paint and finish getting all of my parts together then start on the rest of my modding.

I'm going to pick up a junk console and cut it up use the existing front half to keep the mold into dash to keep the seams tight against the radio bezel area and add my own flare into the back with a custom center piece with maybe a gauge pod, my converterible and foglight switches and some billet cupholders and a few other goodies.
