    Short of Home Depot.. do you have a local marine store nearby? A buddy of mine works at West Marine in CA and had a ton of fiberglass supplies for great prices.

    If you want good quality resin you cant beat US composites. It works much better than cheap HD stuff, but it does cost more.

    Re: Where to buy fiberglass materials

    A gallon would probably sparingly do 2 solid door panels.

    Use regular 1-1.5oz chop mat to build

    Re: Where to buy fiberglass materials

    step 1) build the skeleton of all the pieces
    2) wrap it in some material
    3) Take the material off and see how much you used.
    4) multiply by however many layers you want to use > 4 layers
    5) figure out how many pack you'll need by how much you measured.


    Come on. Think for yourself.
