Re: Need fiberglass help

Epoxy is much better IMHO. I use West. Their web site has many hints and tips and step by step guides.

Most chopped strand mat does not work with epoxy if planning to use CSM get the stuff that does work with epoxy.

If the surface finish matters learn how to use peel ply. IT IS MAGIC STUFF.

If it is not structural then any kind of tapered edges work , do both sides if possible.

If using a filler to thicken the epoxy micro balloons will sand easily silica will not.

Remember if you **** up totally it is no big deal just grind it off and do it again.
