    You can get some light mat and cloth at walmart, auto part stores, and boat supply stores locally. Several places to find it online as well. Fiberglast.com uscomposites.com just a couple

    Re: no where to buy 'glass?

    no tanto

    To get started all you really need is
    mat and or cloth
    resin and hardener
    RUBBER GLOVES
    Some disposable chip brushes
    plastic containers to mix resin in
    some sharp scissors to cut the mat / cloth
    I suggest a fiberglass roller. You can do with out it. But once you have used one, you will smack yourself for not buying one sooner.
    a couple plastic spreaders
    And lots of ideas .........

    Yeah, but I can reuse plastic. Just let the resin dry, then squeeze the cup.
