Default Olds G - Body Fiberglass Body Parts

I am in search of a fiberglass front bumper and fenders for my 81 Olds Cutlass. Anybody know where I can get fiberglass body parts for my car. Also, does anybody make a fiberglass hood other than a cowl induction hood?
Thanks,
Tony

I have a catalog from Dick Miller racing and within the catalog, there is a section for 'glass parts. like you, I was looking for regular 'glass hood without the cowl induction and so far that's the only place I know that will make it. Also they have other 'glass parts too.

According to the catalog, like every 'glass part, it will take 4-6weeks to make them and need prepayment for the parts since it's a special order. You also need to decide you want to go with LW which is for racing and HD for street since LW part is much more lighter but I doubt it will last on street abuse.

Hope this help.

The fiberglass parts in Dick Miller's catalog are from US Body Source. He's just a distributor.

Compare his part #'s to US Body Sources part#'s. He just adds the DMR in front of their's.

Another company out there to look at is Glasstek:

Thanks BigBlockOlds. I was thinking of the same thing but wasn't too sure. It just that I couldn't find any stock 'glass hood from US Body source.

Anyway, thanks again.
