Ok, let's take a look at fiberglass. Glossy smooth surface, very well looking. But what about the complexity of the process? I have to make molds, learn technics and etc, at the end I'll have lightweight strong cowls but what price should I give for it? a lot of hard work? And what about repairs? And the density of fiberglass is not as low as it seems - 2.4 and more g/cm3 - like aluminium. Not suitable again.
