    Re: ahhh fiberglassing starts tomarrow

    Im on my 2nd layer (drying now).

    Words of advice...

    -Use protection...gloves, mask, eyes
    -Watch out for bubbles
    -When adding the hardner, try different amounts till its right (dosent dry up too fast, doesnt NOT dry)...I started using 60 every 6oz...now im using 40-45 and it hardens just fine

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.

    I know you are being sarcastic, but I use gloves. No mask...ever...then I can't smoke Oh wait, I quit that. But I just don't care. And I only wear glasses if I am cutting it...just sunglasses though. But I do all my work outside, so that helps tonnes

    No.......your just used to it.





    The bitter after-taste of a poor quality job will last far longer than
    the sweetness of that cheap price!
