Fiberglass is pretty nice. It will never rust!!! Granted the dust is a pain to work with but if you make a mistake that's nothing that tigerhair and putty can't fix. As for marking the holes for the heater and everything here is an easy fix. (yes I use the term easy loosely)
Carefully cut the firewall out of the metal body. Them take sheet metal screws and attach it to the fiberglass firewall. Now you can just drill the hole to the exact size and location and everything lines up fairly well that way.
Oh and as far as bodies. Expect to spend 2000-2500 on a glass body. Some are better than others of course. 4WD makes a nice one and so does AJ's. With the AJ's body they will put the color in the gel coat so no need to paint it!!! that's a plus!
