Material of original AMC/Jeep Shrouds

Gonna try and repair the original shroud to original appearance.

Does anyone know the material that these were made of?

I think it's a phenolic plastic with some fiberglass thrown into the mix.

I'd make it out of fiberglass mat and resin if I were you.

I love how arguements end as soon as Ristow comments. Ristow is right...again.

For the price, ZM has them for $110. Totally worth it if I choose not to repair the original.

The ultimate goal is restoration, minus basic performance upgrades.

And an original shroud would definitely give that restored look.
