Fiberglass cars are not as common as metal/steel cars; they’re generally kit cars, race cars and custom-made car bodies used by automotive enthusiasts. Fiberglass is not as durable as metal and can crack and chip easily. Some fiberglass cars need to be repainted completely to repair damage and make the car look new again. Learn how to paint fiberglass cars by following the steps below.

Step 1

Sand the surface of the fiberglass car with 120 grit sand paper on a long sanding block. This roughens the surface and prepares the car for primer. This step also allows you to see any dings, dents or warped areas of the fiberglass that need to be repaired.
