Fibreglass kit?

OK, full of questions tonight boys

What do I need in a Fibreglass kit, be specific please as fibreglassing is one skill I haven't got.....Yet.

I want to do the whole thing, mixing the resin, flo coating, layups etc.

If anyone can point me in the direction for a local supplier and an online instructions site, that would be absoloutly fantasic.

Andy you could also use Southport Glass supplies who also have a wee booklet to tell you how to etc.

Do buy the little mixing bottles to get the quantity right. From personal experience 2% is quite hot and goes off quick, 1% seemed to give me a little longer pot life before it caught fire.

Pop round and lets see what I have left in the garage which your welcome to borrow.

Pete

Ditto the 1%, ignore what everyone says about 2%, at least for the UK. What are you doing?
Fibreglassing is relatively simple, just don't forget the rubber gloves Flowcoating is likewise quite simple, but gelcoating and getting that perfect finish is the difficult bit. Use 1% for gelcoat as well.
