    for easiest to pull and work wrinkle out of I use t-shirt fabric. for the strongest and you dont care about sanding out wrinkles, I use trunk liner.

    I'm partial to fleece myself, unless it's something really delicate ( then either grill cloth or t-shirt material ) but for sub enclosures I use fleece all the way. Absorbs lots of resin

    Re: what fabric is best

    Is $5 a yard to much to spend for it, plus shipping?
    I can get you some.
