the second one is "kick panels" but you can apply what is taught there to any fiberglassing project.

I would read the links that aren't dead and then ask questions. Alot of stuff is explained as far as what you will need and ways of applying mat and such. Then start with a small project. Alot of people try to hard at first. You got to crawl before you can run;) I first started playing with fiberglass fixing boat and jet ski hulls. I had the basics, but it was a little different using it in the car audio applications. I took and old sub box i had lying around. Cut out a ring for a sub . Then mounted the ring to the front of the box with some 2 x 4 pieces. Then stretched the fleece over it, and worked out all the wrinkles. This step was new to me, as you don't use fleece repairing hulls :) Then get to applying resin and so on. IT's not difficult to do if you take your time and be patient. Especially this time of year. When it's cold out, resin doesn't like to harden. You have to either mix it a little warmer, or use a hair dryer or heat gun. If possible I reccomend working inside a garage or something. :)
