Gonna be doing some fiberglass A-pillars and a fiberglass centerconsole enclosure in a few weeks, i just wanted to see some product reccomendations.

What have you guys had good luck with? Where do you buy your stuff from?

there is an auto body shop downtown that carries glassing products, im not sure about their selection yet though.

also, any reccomendations on a resipirator? I dont want something crazy expensive, but i figure it would be good to use one.

i buy the B440 resin from uscomposites and usually just get mat wherever is cheaper, you want to use polyester resin, and i dont use a respirator since i do my work outside, your also gonna need some body filler, and I usually buy 1.5oz mat and just split it in half so you have 2 3/4oz mat pieces, and i find it better to tear the pieces rather than cut the pieces (you will see why once you start)

i buy almost everything from them now, easy to order and one stop shopping, i buy the mat in tape form, real easy to just pull off what you need and its cheap!
