Fiberglass street rod bodies typically feature hand-crafted fiberglass, a gelcoat surface and an inner core to ensure the strength and quality of the product. Manufacturers such as AC Autos often pre-glass and bond parts of the body into place.
The fiberglass used in a steel rod body goes through a 12 point cure process, while components are either hand or machine buffed to produce a flat and shiny surface. Properly aligned bodies result in no flash lines on the gelcoat surface. Aside from the frame and suspension, customers have a number of buying options for the body and other parts of the vehicle.
