The one or more reinforcements are coated with the one or more adhesives and then are placed within the mold cavity. Next the mold cavity is closed and a step of overmolding the one or more reinforcements by injecting molten resin into the mold cavity, then curing the molten resin to form the structural member. The one or more adhesives coated onto the one or more reinforcements facilitates the bonding of the resin of material to the one or more reinforcements.
