73 Mustang Heater Box Part 6 – Fiberglass Work

Thanks for checking back in on #ProjectSportsRoof.  If you recall there was a lot of damage to the heater box, but rather than purchase a new one I opted to see if I could repair this original.

As of this post I’ve cleaned up the box and used JB Weld to put the pieces back in place and I’m ready to apply some fiberglass to harden everything up.

Here is a look at the fiberglass work.

What’s coming up next on the heater box work is a good look at the kit that you can buy that has some of the rubber seals, clips and replacement pads for the internal air flow doors.  We are going to install those and but the box back together.  I know you are on the edge of your seat for that one.

Thanks for reading.
