About a week ago I got the rest of the body panels for my 87 mustang. I got them mocked up on the car yesterday everything lined up pretty well for parts off of three different cars. The only thing I noticed is the fiberglass nose where it wraps up around on top of the marker light where it bolts to the fender is a little off from the holes. There are no cracks in the fiberglass in that area. I've heard if fiberglass in the sun for a long period of time it will flex or warp. Does anyone know how I can get it lined up without cracking the fiberglass?

Also if you have some imperfections such as scratches, dings, chips use polyester filler.

Most of todays fiberglass parts are well protected with a gel coat.  As far as autobody the normal procedure to bend or remove a dent in a fiberglass part is to use a heat gun on low settings.  You can also use a hair dryer on high.  You must move it around to not burn the gel coat.  When you go to do this have a buddy handy.  A extra set of hands and another pair of eyes come in handy.
