Still debating that.. I need to put it on the far before I can decide... but it looks like it might look kinda weird that the exhaust is all the way out there.

No, it's not. I worked at an auto body shop.
You don't use a soldering iron to "plastic weld" and fiberglass overlay.
The proper way would be using Lord Fusor or 3M Automix products for plastic adhesive and then an Evercoat polyester filler with finishing/glazing putty.
But carry on

Like I said earlier..I don't have acess to those things.. I work with what I got.. I'm hardcore like that... diy style..

And this is custom shiet bro... not patching a little hole or crack like u do at ur body shop...
