My guess would be to go to Home Depot and pick up a bunch of the insulation
Styrofoam boards.  You could make these into mock walls without any
framing.  They are cheap, water resistant and could be reusable.

I need to do some serious race car fiberglass work but since my "shop"
(garage) is integral with the house the smell and dust would be totally

To my surprise the local "Stor-It" place does not frown on such work in
any of their units - but of course there is no heat, light, power, water
etc and no insulation - I'm talking Detroit area so winters are quite
cold. I can solve the heat and light with a portable kerosene heater and
a sizable generator I guess but what about insulation? Existing walls
and roof are just galvanized steel paneling. Does the list recommend I
try to install some temporary insulation or what? If so how? I'm
thinking not only off getting working temperature up to 65F for the
actual lay-up process but of keeping it at least 55F for the full resin

Help please.
