you have knowledge of using mat and resin, but you want to know where to buy the "goo" to go over the fleece....

it's just resin + hardener

for the fleece you get a razor blade and cut lines down the side so it doesnt fold over itself.

sorry to intrude on the thread, but do you even need to use mat when you do the fleece the 1st time? or just coat the fleece real heavy and let it dry, then when its dry do you start with mat again?

if you wrap it right , you dont have to make any cuts, just keep working and streachin the fleece so there are no folds. then soak the fleese in resin.

kpozr2: coat it first, let dry, sand it a bit, then lay the mat down.

1. Keep pulling and stretching, the wrinkles and folds will come out rather easy. I like to use spray glue on the back of my molds to hold the fleece when I'm stretching it.Then just work my way around removing and folds or wrinkles as I go. Only cutting needed will be trimming excess from the rear.

2. Don't want to stretch holes in it. But you also don't want it too sag when you apply resin.

3. as was said the goo is polyester resin and hardener. Can get it at wally world, autozone, advance, pep boys, boat supply yards.

4. I try to get at least one ( more if possible ) through the back side of the kick into the metal frame in the kick area of the car. :)
