I will be fiberglassing my door panels in a week or so. I am going to be using some polyester fleece. The question I have is which would be better to use, Fiberglass resin or Dynatron Dynaglass?

no idea what dynatron is. resin over the fleece to get the shape, then resin/mat for strength...

someone told me that dynaglass is like an all in one product with hardner and short fiber whereas fiberglass resin you have to have mat and hardner.

Use resin my friend, much easier and cleaner to work with trust me.

Dynaglass aka kitty hair, after you get your shape you use that to add strength. It's just resin mixed with cloth fibers in a can.

use resin/mat and sand it smooth. if you have air pockets or low spots you can fill those with kitty hair...

You use fiberglass resin on cloth for your initial shape, then you add strength with resin and fiberglass mat, then you use body filler to perfect the shape and fill in imperfections. Any filler that has glass fibers in it is for when you need to build a thick area up, like If you wanted to take up a large gap between two pieces of wood, don't use it to fill small imperfections as it won't do as good a job as a lightweight filler (look up "rage gold" on google)
