    Are you just looking for a place to buy fiberglass or are you looking for a design?

    Welcome to the forum.

    This site has lots (thousands) of previous threads about applying 'glass to just about everything you can think of. Maybe some searching might help. You'll need to familiarize yourself with the materials and techniques, then work up a design that's suitable.

    It sounds like you're looking to build a road box, that's stout enough to stand on. Maybe an opening top or lid, living at the front of the bed of a pickup? Not a terribly difficult thing to do, though some thought into reinforcement will be necessary, to keep it light and strong. Can you post a sketch of what you're looking to make?
