Default Best source for fiberglass cowl

Considering building a CG Ultimate this building season and I’m looking for any recommendations on the best quality / value for the fiberglass cowl. I’ve purchased from Stan’s Fibertech in the past but have also seen fiberglass specialties as well. Any recommendations based on quality? The less prep I need to do on the cowl before paint would be a factor to be considered as well.

Thanks

GB, unfortunately Fiberglass Specialties will not ship to Canada, I tried to order a cowl for my TF Corsair several months ago and FS would not accept my order. This statement is also on their home page Quote "Due to COVID-19 we are not taking international orders".

Hi Roger,

Thanks for the info. That policy doesn’t make any sense, it good to know.

I use CBP for any shipments from the US that either don’t ship to Canada or offer free shipping in the US. I order to my US address provided by CBP and they bring it across the border and I either pick up from them or have them ship to me from Mississauga.

CBP is a simple way to take advantage of free US shipping or situations like you described.
