    Can I....?(glassing shortcuts, need advise)

    Hey

    About to start glassing,

    Wanted to know the quickest way to glass.

    I have Biaxial Cloth 17oz.

    Was wondering if i could like lay them down, likst 3 layers, and just start dumping resin on top of that? Let it soak and roll it.

    It's cold and i'd hate to have to do each piece at a time.

    Also what's the best way to lay the glass? I was thinking first layer would be like 2"x4" strips all laid straight and the 2nd layer perpendicular to that? Or shouild i interchange the first layer, Or just do it in every angle possible?

    If youre using 17oz why do 3 layers? standard thickness used is 18oz (3 layers of 6oz) I think 2 layers is more than enough and if you dont mix your resin to hot you can do one layer over the other in 1 shot just cross em.

    Re: Can I....?(glassing shortcuts, need advise)

    lol, Thx guys! Yea i actually am doing 2 layers, with like some areas getting 3, mainly because i had extra resin/coth strips so i just threw it on there!

    This shi+ is TUFF!!! wow! NOW i see what ramos was talking about when i was worried about the paint.

    I need to just grind of the spikes and extra, then fleece a port, resin, glass that then the bottom, and i'm done. I'm gonna aim for today.

    I do it outside because of the fumes, don't want them to get in the house, becauise my garage is attached.

    When i do the filling and sanding i'll take that inside.

    I usually try to use as large of pieces as I can manage. And lay as many layers at one time as possible. Switching bias with each layer.
