The Fiberglass & Other Composite Materials is a how-to guide to build high performance non-metallic materials for race cars, street rods, boats, aircraft and body shops.
Composite materials, in addition to aluminum and steel, have been used for many years in racing vehicles for their durability and lightness.
And now these space-age materials are being used on street cars, hot rods, muscle cars, boats, light aircraft and more.
