    Fiberglass question

    When I went to go pick up some resin for my first shot at a fiberglass box there was a premixed shorthair/resin tub available.

    Is that any good, or should I stick to the longer stuff?

    Not sure what you mean. Was it the resin jelly ? I would stick with just plain jane liquid polyester resin.

    i think that was a type of bodyfiller called "kittyhair" or "tigerhair". its not what you are looking for.

    just get a pint\gallon of fiberglass epoxy or polyester resin.

    Yeah, it was the resin, with the hair already mixed in. You just mixed in the hardener and layed it down.

    I think this is it... http://www.bondo-online.com/catalog_...sp?itemNbr=208

    So I should stick with the longhair mat and resin.

    Thanks.

    I won't need the filler right? I'm only glassing the box to the floor as it is an odd shape. The top will be wood. Glass not visible in this install.
