Is the hood to a Gen I fiberglass or composite?

The body panels and doors are RIM. The HOOD being SMC on later than 92 cars. Early 92's were RIM hoods. Front and rear fascias are RIM with injection-molded impact beams.

Fusor (by Lord Chemical)would still be the compound of choice to repair. Both these types of panels use release agents that are injected into the mix. You can't use fiberglass or regular bondo, they WON'T stick.
This is available from Ecklers Corvette parts. www.ecklers.com. Page 194 in their catalogue.

I was thinking about doing a GEN I hood conversion with Naca duct and hood louvers, but instead of dropping the duct and louvers in I would like to make them completely seamless. I was told that this probably wouldn't work with SMC, that cracks or seperation may occur. Doing it seamless with fiberglass wouldn't be a problem, but I guess that's not the case. Anyone have any ideas?

Can Fusor be used as a surface filler as well as an adhesive?
