Fiberglass and Composite Materials
by Forbes Aird

For many years, race cars of all types have been constructed with lightweight materials in addition to aluminum and steel. These include fiberglass, KevlarR and reinforced plastics. The application of this space-age technology is also becoming more widely used on street cars as stronger materials are developed, costs become lower and techniques are simplified. The Corvette has always been built of fiberglass, and cars such as the Chevy Lumina and 1994 and up Mustangs also use reinforced plastic materials in certain body panels. But the most common automotive application is racing, and the equipment and technology today now make it possible for many racers to repair, and even construct, their own lightweight body panels using these materials. Sections covered include: * FRP Materials * Fibers and Fiber Forms * Resins * Gel Coats * Advanced Techniques * Building Molds and Plugs * Structures and Materials * Health and Safety Tools and Shop Equipment This handbook is required reading for any racing or automotive enthusiast, as well as automotive engineering and design students or professionals, body shop technicians, and professionals in the marine industry.
