    Quick fiberglass question....

    I layed resin only on top of the box after I covered it with a cloth, than I flipped the box over and layed the actual fiberglass on their. So the box is strong and sturdy, now since i only have resin on the top, do I NEED to lay any fiberglass on top of it,? Also when I was stretching the cloth I got some few minor wrinkles that are showing still, I use bondo auto filler for that than sand correct? Thanks this forum has ben very helpful.

    Re: Quick fiberglass question....

    As long as you layed enough underneath it to make it strong, there's no need to lay any on top, will actually make your sanding life harder.

    As far as getting out the wrinkles, yes, just bondo and sand as many times as need be. Remember, it doesn't have to be as smooth if you're carpeting as it does if you plan to paint or lay vinyl.

    just mix it as the directions say, and then apply to a roughly sanded *CLEAN AND DRY* surface. try and make it as smooth as possible to eliminate hardcore sanding.

    sabout it.

    Re: Quick fiberglass question....

    and do a "skim layer". this is done by mixing so acetone to the body filler. most people like 50/50, mix more and more acetone to your body filler untill it's the consistancy your looking for.
