    I was told to buy a gallon of resign its cheaper than buying smaller ammounts cause you always need more than you think. you will prolly use half a gallon but never know. get yourself 8-12 bags of mat and return what you dont use better to have more onhand than be caught with mixed resin and no mat left.

    I made a small ~ 1.0 cu^3 ft box behind my wheel well in my trunk and it took about a gallon of resin and 3 bags of glass sheet (8 or 9 sq ft per bag). Like the others have said, buy in bulk. It's always cheaper and you don't want to run out. Look for a marine store for the best prices. Here's my first attempt at box building. http://community.webshots.com/script...umID=342980278 I'm starting on the other side right now and it seems like it will be so much better. Good luck man.
