Be sure to look up how to's on youtube and such, as well as audio enthusiasts' build logs in the audio/video section for tips and tricks when it comes to fiberglassing. Yes, attaching a fiberglass section to the plastic parts of your interior is possible, however, where the seams are, you'll have to bondo those up good. Be creative!

IMO, use a solid mdf frame first, and glass to that. Staple gun your fabric to this frame, and trust me it will hold 10x better than adhered to plastic
