How To Install Shelby-Look Fiberglass
Stang-A-Holics Now Offers Quality Front And Rear Fiberglass For '69-'70 Mustangs
Although we've seen some hard times lately, the Mustang hobby is still enjoying a wealth of new products from the special interest Ford aftermarket. Stang-A-Holics has roared onto the scene with outstanding restomods and a host of new products for classic and late-model Mustangs alike.
Ron and Ryan Peter invited us to their Stang-A-Holics shop near Porterville, California, to check out a new line of fiberglass that will change your perception about fiberglass Mustang body panels. Fiberglass is traditionally troublesome and challenging to work with. Not this new fiberglass, as manufactured for Stang-O-Holics by Jim Reeves at Jim's Classics & Hot Rods. Jim brought his Shelby-look '69-'70 Mustang fiberglass to Ron and Ryan's shop for our inspection and installed it on a '69 Mustang Mach 1. We were amazed at how easy it was to install and adjust. It required very little massaging and tweaking to achieve a perfect fit.
Jim's Classics & Hot Rod's fiberglass is a cut above due to how they make it. "We use only ISO fiberglass resins," Jim Reeves tells us, "not the cheaper resins a lot of manufacturers use." Jim adds that ISO polyester resin has a much greater resistance to heat, which means it won't shrink or warp over time. It has much higher shear strength than cheaper fiberglass. And this really is about cost because you get what you pay for when it comes to fiberglass body panels. Durability is unmatched.
Stang-A-Holics offers these fiberglass body dress-up parts for '69-'70 Mustangs along with fiberglass for '65-'68 and '05-'09 Mustangs as well. Give Ryan or Peter a call or contact them via the Stang-A-Holics website. Check out the selection of Mustang fiberglass body kits, including Eleanor for classics.
