It is not as hard to find good fiberglass work as it used to be. My advise is to learn how you want the work done and talk to the body guy about how it is to be done. progress photos of every step and in person approval before primer would be advisable.

People who talk about grinding, avoid. media blasting nope

a real full on body restoration is blindingly expensive, so be prepared

I used a good shop based in Hanover, PA, where there are little regulations on paint. The fiberglass work was amazing and included deleting the rear side lights on the S4, cutting in new front fenders and cutting the doors. Not happy with the overspray, and some of the details with the paint. Easy recommendation for fiberglass, a bit more cautious on the paint, but would depend on how you deliver the car. I would recommend stripping it as much as possible. PM me if you want the contact details. Dan
