I like Hairyglass the best but they don't make everything. Check their website, if they make what you're looking for buy it.

Glasstek and VFN are pretty close in quality, either one of them would be my second choice.


IMO ....... there are no other choices.

In order best to worst IMO.

5 star / Rousch/ McAmis/ cynergy (all very very good, I consider them equal)

Hairy Glass ( was the best, I've had issues with thier quality since the dad passed)

Glasstek / VFN (both good for stock body parts, I own both on my own car. I've had issues with VFN in the past... but recently they are good.

Suncoast (they make stuff others don't, so we use them. Mostly corvette roadster bodies... but the quality is not very good. The glass itself is workable, their molds suck.

Then a bunch of junk companies:
Unlimited
US body source
Supperior glassworks
And a few others I dont remember and have no use for.

For the extream high end, ULTRA CARBON makes very very nice stock replacement carbon fiber parts. Be aware their prices are 3-4 times most fiberglass companies.

Will I wish Ultra carbon was in the price range lol. But after 24 years same paint its time to change it up. Buying glass front end, hood and doors for the 69 nova and a new paint job.
Leaning towards Glassteck at the moment.

Camaro and Nova fiberglass from Harwood. All pieces were near perfect fit. I will never, never buy from Unlimited again.
