    Rollers - $20ish


    14 yards of glass in my box was WAY overkill... You could get away with much less and cut costs.
    Oh, nice.
    I live on the coast, and know a few fiberglass-ers. One told me he would get me his price on materials, if I was going to get into it. I don't remember that price now, but I remember looking into it at the time and saying it was a good deal.
    However, I never really got into how much material is needed for a job of X caliber, etc.



    Now designing / building boxes.
    (Only building sealed and aero port boxes.)
    PM me.

    It takes work, man. I just started fooling around with it last year. Doing a few things to my boat... (had to rebuild the transom, and converted a front bench seat into a insulated fiberglass cooler/seat) Itchy itchy itchy **** man. All the grinding i did in shorts and a t-shirt (bad idea)

    I think not.


    I didn't say "me and my dad's." i said "me (and my dad's)" the only punctuation error i made was putting "me" instead of "my" so it should be my (and my dad's) enclosure build.
    pwned
