I've heard it's a bad idea to put a fibreglass car in an oven as the resin can return to a liquid state and put the body out of shape. I don't have any scientific evidence for this but I've heard it more than once from respected sources.

Lotus Esprit [meaning] a 1:1 scale Airfix kit with a propensity to catch fire

Also, can cause any trapped air bubbles to burst out.  :thumbdown:

 

Here's another respray on LotusEspritWorld.
