    Hey Nexson,

    What is that Putty type material you used in picture #4? I need to make a custom bracket and need some type of material to mold into place and then glass over like you did.

    Thanks is advance,
    Mike

    Nexus, while discussing fabrication of a bezel with someone on one of the forums that needed help, haviong seen your stuff, I pointed him your way and someone else out there mentioned that you're a god among men as far as fabrication goes! Now that IS a compliment!

    I'm new to fabrication, but I have some logic and basic understanding about how stuff works, been tinkering away with hardware at home and for others too. All the ACE hardware staff here know me quite well by now!

    I was wondering, do you have a starter's guide or something similar to get noobs like me off the ground? I'm particularly interested in fibreglass works, but I'm willing to learn from scratch if it means working with other material.

    Do lemme know.

    Once again, keep up the good work!
    If it works - MOD IT!

    Nexson,

    I have a quick question about Duraglass. When your mixing it up what type of ratio do you use? I've been working with small amounts about the size of a golf ball or so and adding about a 1/4 to 3/8" of hardener to it. Does that sound about right to you? It's been working OK so far and it's similar to Bondo so I used their recommendations on the ratio. What do you think?

    hehe Thanks! I am glad to be noticed! Which forum was this BTW? Also, sorry for the late response, school has had be busy during the summer.

    As for a starter guide, I do not really have one. Rather I have many threads on this very section in which they pretty much spell out the how the process should work. What I would do if I were you, is to find a cheap panel on your car that you can possibly get a duplicate of. Then from there I would try and mold in whatever it is your choose, be it a gauge or tv. This way you can get a good start and it is purely for you only, so there is no burden.

    If you get this going, then you can defintely use me as a guide for any questions. You can get a hold of me through AIM, in which my username is Exus28.

    Also, I would try and visit the fiberglassforums.com. Over there we have many different threads that display different work and techniques.

    Hope this helps!

    This is a good question, and after time you sort of just learn it. Mixing up hardener with body filler is just sort of how you want to work it. For instance, if you want to work it fast then you would had alot more. My best advice would be to get your duraglass on your mixing pad. Once it is on your mixing pad, it will sort of resemble a circle or whatever shape it is when it hits the pad, we will refer to the shape as a "blop". I would take the hardener and run it from one side of the duraglass "blop" to the other side. It will pretty much be one white line across the "blop".

    I am assuming the hardener cream is white

    Does this help? I hope I described it well enough.
