Sorry to bring up an old thread, came on it by chance and got some questions.

What filler is used and is the MDF used as a mould or is it covered. If so with what?
Cheers

I think once you've got the shape and faired it you need to cover/paint it. You then need to get this paint really smooth, ie like glass.
You then apply lots of release wax so the gel coat will come away.

Once you've done that layup the fibreglass to produce a mould.

Ah, I thought it would be to much for the working space I had. Cheers

You'd don't have to build a console!

Try with something small like a housig for a VHF or something?

you are best off using a car body filler! this is usualy a good solid base that is easy to sand. then paint in a good 2k paint for best result, flat off with fine wet and dry and buff to a high gloss finish so wax can be applied.
