had my first ever atempt at fibreglassing today and it's not easy , when i got this body off skip , he had cut this part out ,to clear his chassis, but i have a little bit more clearance , so i altered it and glassed it back in, also skips shocks stood proud of his body ,so he made two square resesses , i have cut these out as i don't need them and when i make a mould ,it will be easer to get apart with out these in the body













this is a piece i trimed off , but it fits nice in the gap, so i started to glass it in place

I hav'nt done this modification yet,but i wouldsay you got air trapped somewhere.Fill resovour with brake fluid pump lever many times,loosen left bleed nipple, pump lever a few times,see if trapped air is being expelled.Tighten bleed nipple,continue pumping lever,loosen right bleed nipple to expell air.It may take a few goes to remove air lock.What sometimes works is when resovours full loosen left bleed nipple pump lever till fluid comes through, continue pumping till pressure is felt then lock bleed nipple,repeat on right caliper.Good luck!!
