    Re: Fiberglass How To's

    Ok I have seen alot of people on here guiding others in technique of fiberglass. Most say push down on the paint brush to paint the resin on, that is true so you don't make a rough serface. Others say paint it on that is NOT a good idea you will end up making alot more work for yourself and also will not be working out air bubbles you will be causing them. However if you want an even easier method then both of these. The way I switched to always doing it is cut the matt make strips like your making a pinyatta (however you spell that) cut a ton of strips up now mix your resin. throw on some cheap latex gloves dip the strips one at a time in the resin then lay it where it needs to be then repeat. if you do it right you might not even need to touch a paint brush. Now if you are working with grill cloth or sweatshirt material or something of the sort for shaping. Then brush away. Hope this helps some people out there.

    The dipping method is good, I like to use a plastic body spatula to help press the mat into corners and such. It's also great for helping you get rid of the excess resin.

    Re: Fiberglass How To's

    Im confused on this deal, do you put the glass on the inside of the cloth or the outside or both sides or what, I couldn't find any straight forward how to's.

    The best way to envision the process:
    -imagine filling a cup with maple syrup
    -put a piece of cloth where you want it to stay/mold to
    -dip cheap chip brush into syrup
    -dab/spread syrup on cloth so that it pentrates the cloth
    -repeat several times

    Of course, the syrup is polyester or epoxy resin here. And you're doing this in your car. And it dries rock hard. In doing so, it stays in the countour/shape where you placed it.

    "Fiberglass" = resin + cloth or mat
