I want to mold my front air dam to my bumper to smooth out the look a lil bit, but i'm not quite sure how to do it. I wanna do it myself so i can save the money and i've been told a couple different ways to do it, either to bondo it up or somethin wit a polyurethane sheet? Maybe? Any help would be great.

I made one on my 79 monza out of fiberglass.
I was having problem's with oversteer at speeds over 140mph.
After it was done It looked good and really help keep the front end down, and it corrected the oversteer.

Fiberglas bonds to metal just fine. Bondo is not for filling dents and definetly not for molding. I think if everyone would just learn that bondo (body filler) doesnt mold or fill dents the world would be a much better place. Body filler shouldnt be over 1/8 in thick if at all possilbe (1/4) at the most and it shouldnt be put anywhere where there is flex (like molding). It is made to smooth out a surface and get hammer/pull marks out after you hammer or pull a dent as close to back as you can.
