Interest in Fiberglass Parts?

I am thinking of making Fiberglass Turbo front end parts for my car this winter. That includes Hood, nose, fenders and header panel. To start out with it will be stock replica parts. My aim is to be a true bolt on item with a paint ready white gelcoat finish. I made a headlight cover mold to see how bad at this I was.... and whaddya know, it wasnt too bad. With some practice I think these parts can be quite good. If I make the molds what is the interest for bolt on parts? I am not ready at all for Carbon Fiber, its harder to work with and over 5x more expensive for the fabric alone.

Comments are welcome. I am kinda working on a site that these parts could be found at: www.UnobtaniumRacing.com

Here are some pictures of the mold I made strait off the part with no clean-up.
