OK, just to be clear, with a small shop and only a part time hobby level commitment, this is not the big leagues.  As a
confirmed or die hard car or motor sports fan, my hobby, my career and life has led me to this point, and I call it: The
Fiberglass Fan-Attic. A simple play on words that describes my simple attic based fiberglass shop, complete with the
required fan and all made right here in the good old USA..

I've always been interested in fiberglass cars, especially the VW based dune buggy and kit cars of the 70's.  Learning
first through necessary repairs and a general shortage of cash, then its mold-ability to create a complex shape with
surprising strength.   With all of the creativity possible and design legends like Bruce Meyers, Ed Roth and plenty of other
California customizers shaping things with this plastic, I've had plenty of inspiration.

After quite a few years working with this interesting although, smelly product, I have managed to re-create a couple of
specialized parts for the restoration of the fiberglass Deserter dune buggies.

My original goal was simply to make a much needed piece for one of my restorations that simply were no longer available.  
With a mold created, I now had the ability to provide parts for others in need of the same part?

Here's a list of the parts we currently can provide to the Deserter Dune Buggy fan. You can click on the part for a better

- Some Advice on Shipping Large Parts from the Fiberglass Fan-Attic:

Due to the size of these fiberglass parts, whenever possible a local pickup is preferable, but I understand that’s not
always possible.  I can prepare the item for shipping by the freight company of YOUR choice and at YOUR expense.  YOU
make all the arrangements for a pickup in my driveway and delivery to yours.

I will pack the items, totally surrounding the entire fiberglass part with cardboard including
two layers on all edges and then completely wrapping it securely with a plastic stretch wrap.  
See Photo->

These items are not heavy, but the size exceeds the usual UPS or Fed-X shipping
requirements.  Here’s the weight and dimension information that you will need to provide
to your shipping company.

- Engine Cover – 30lbs/ea – 54 in. by 56 in. by 16in.

- Side Tanks – 30lbs/pair – 60 in. by 20 in. by 12 in.

- GT Doors - 25lbs/pair - 48 in. by 24 in. by 24 in.

- Front Bumper  10 lbs/ea- 60 in. by 12 in. by 2 in.

"I pick up the package on Wed & deliver it to our customer. Packing was good. Just to let you know, he's extremely happy
with the hood & the workmanship. He can't stop talking about it & how I made everything possible happen to get it here to
St Thomas for him.

I would like to Thank You for being a man of your word, keeping the communicate line open & your fine workmanship in re-
creating the hood for us. I kept one of your business card & give him the next, so that if anyone else have an interest in
getting one, we'll be working together again.

Once again, you have done a great job!!  

THANK YOU"

That's all for know, keep you buggy running.

- Other Dribble:

My interest in this hobby has also led me, or I've followed it to the web.  Here's a couple of web pages that I build and
manage for clubs that I belong to.

- The Bug Club - A very active, New Hampshire based, all VW club.

- The Deserter Owners Group - An Internet based group that discusses everything related to the Deserter dune
buggy's made by Autodynamics and Dearborn Automotive Corp of Marblehead, MA in the late 60's and early 70's.
