    Default Body filler for front clip

    Is there a special body that would be used on the plastic front clip?

    I know that the regular type body filler uses fiberglass. Is there a product that works better for worn areas in the fiberglass? Is one easier to get a smoother surface?

    Duraglas is what I use as a first coat. It is tough amd some what hard to sand. I use Rage Extreme as a final coat. It is easier to sand and will leave a finished smooth surface to prime. Hope this helps.

    Are you talking about true plastic, like modern cars, or fiberglass parts? Or perhaps Endura like the old GTOs had? The filler material can make a difference based on the part material. It also makes a difference when you go to paint these parts since plastic and Endura expand and contract slightly with temperature changes so you have to use a flex agent in the paint and primer so they don't develop cracks later on. Fiberglass is more resistant to cracking and you can paint it more like sheet metal.

    Thanks Frosty. It's fiberglass, That's been painted. The problem area on the top next to passenger fender. It's not deep, but I need it to be smooth.
