    Wrinkles.....not the ones on the old lady

    Ok....

    In the process of building my first FG box.

    I ran a search already, but they were more geard to stretching, pre resin solutions.

    Lets say the resin is already down on the fleece, what's the best way to get rid of/fix the wrinkles due to my lack of stretching skills?

    Should i buildup with Glass? Bondo? Duraglas? Or combination?

    Heres the thing

    I resined the outside of the fleece/box
    I'm glassing the inside of the box

    The wrinkles are at most about 1/2" deep.

    is bondo alone good enough? that's a lot of bondo. Is that good enough though, or should i glass some of the outside?

    Yep should stretched real good before hand. I know too late now I would use reinforced filler for dips that deep.

    i ran into the same problem so i gave up on fiberglass. you should take a look at my door pods as long as they sound good that's all that matters to me.

    Aww man did i try!! I even did some relief cuts and angle stretches and so on, it's tuff!

    BUT i only had a glue gun to work with. I know if i had a air stapler life would have been easier!

    But it's coming along nicely. Ggonna try get some pics for u guys.

    I might end up wit some gaps that i'll fill with biaxial.

    I give u guys respect, this stuff is tuff!

    nah, the actual glassing itself is easy. Getting to the point where you can start glassing is where all the works at .

    I would sand it down some with a power sander, then build it back up with glass, then bondo milkshake to smooth out.

    You will probably need three layers.
