    can i fix it =( i think i messed up

    ok so as i am trying to make my first fiberglass enclosure..i feel as if i didnt make the mold strong enough..and with each layer i tak on..the more air bubbles and lumps arise...i was thinking of sanding down the fiberglass and then layering it right...cause after all the fiberglassing i did..i finally got the hang of it at the end. so what you guys think? can i sand it down flat and then do it righ?

    nah take it down to wheres its good, and rebuild it back up. useing a brush, poke the pices in to place, it will push the air out. dont brush them on. do small squares, like 3x3 or 4x4

    Re: can i fix it =( i think i messed up

    x2 on the poke it w/ the brush, just sand the bubbles down flat, then build it back up. i used varying sized pieces. bigger ones for the flat sections and smaller ones for the corners. also don't cut the matt...rip it, the frayed edges be stronger than the cut edges
