    Is fiberglass easier to repair than metal?

    Hi,
    anyone know if fiberglass kits are easier to repair than their metal production car counterparts?

    What's involved in repairing fiberglass? Do body shops charge more or less to repair fiberglass as opposed to metal?

    THanks,

    Metal is lot easy to work with and shape.a good metalbeater can make any panel out off flat sheet.Fiberglass once it's cure ,you can't bend or shrink etc. To me ,metal is better to work on. small repairs on fiberglass are easy . to replace a panel thar you may want a someone more experienced to do. my opinion only.
