    fiberglass sub box ?

    if i lay down trashbags instead of putting down a crap load of painters tape, would the fiberglass (when it drys) come off of the trashbags?

    resin will probably eat it. Painter's tape & layer of tin foil is the way I do it.

    Yes, tinfoil is the way to go for easy uninstallation.

    masking tape + vaseline worked really well for me today.

    Re: fiberglass sub box ?

    just FYI - ive tried it, and its a pain in the ***.

    basically - the bags will only stick to where you tape them down, and thatis on the edges. so when you lay the glass, the whole middle part shifts and moves and is all gay, then you get an uneven rear part that is all wrinkly... so when you go to put your next layer down, its all ****** and full of bubbles.

    tape + foil + PAM spray works quite well. get the 2" wide tape on the interweb, and you will be very happy.

    I like to use Painters tape / tin foil / vaseline. I have also tried the trash bag thing and the resin eventually eats through it and makes it really bubbly.

    A couple of hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator, in a calm soothing voice says: Just take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead? There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy's voice comes back on the line. He says: "OK, now what?"
