    need help with fiberglass

    Hi, Im a newbie to this forum, and about to start my first fiberglassing project, my question is, when i make my inital mold inside the car do i just paint a few layers of resin on the tape, and wait for it to dry, then pop it out and put the fiberglass mat on, or does the mat have to go on inside the car, cuz i tryed doing it like this and had an extreme amount of trouble doing it, so i pulled every thing out and im gonna start over.

    thanks for your help
    Darryl

    copy that EXACTALLY and it will work.

    paint a layer of resin, use eaither fiberglass matte OR fiberglass weave - FLEECE IS FOR THE FRONT to make the contour shape that looks cool - NOT FOR STRENGTH!

    fiberglass = strong
    fleece = cool shape

    use one layer of matte\weave in the trunk, wait to dry, then take it out and keep layering.
