Default Stiffening body?

What do you all think about Fiberglassing the inside of a lexan body to stiffen it up? I know it couldnt be painted traditionally, but i could paint the outside and clearcoat it. I just dont like lexan bodies being floppy and this would also make it easier to mount and build on.

Thanks!

That would work, if you can live with black windows.

Hmm. Well i may go for it.. Either way ill be ditching the windows. The guys at the LHS say to use Tamiya PS(plastics?) paint on the outside and then clearcoat it. Does this sound right?
