You could rip the fake vinyl off and fiberglass, yes I said fiberglass, over the old black foam underneath. From my experience it doesn't melt with polyester or vinyl ester. While doing this you can add expanding foam to reshape it any way you want (Add gauge pods, etc.). After you lay the chopped strand mat (2-5 layers) smooth it over with some evercoat lightweight body filler. After that choose the paint (flat, matte or glossy) or upholster any way you want. Sounds difficult but its really simple.For anyone who thinks fiberglass is bad doesn't know all about it . Fiberglass it's self is actually matte. Its the gel coat fiberglasers use in the mold that is glossy. Polyester gel coat (most commonly used) is meant to be sanded & painted on most applications due to its low UV resistance and brittle traits.CF is also a form of FRP (fiber reinforced plastic, just like fiberglass) but since it mainly uses epoxy resin, it becomes glossy.Believe me I know, just look at my name.
