Wow. Did you say neon? Why don't you just go hang out with them. And wipe off your chin while your at it. Just trying to save you a couple bucks, but obviously you don't care. I use Select for stuff I can't get anywhere else. US Composites is cheaper and I gurantee they go through more resin than Select so it's going to be fresher and last longer. It's not "mold fabric" it's cheap *** fleece. ****s $1 a yard at walmart. And build your own rings. Then they are the exact size you need.
NSK thanks for giving us a place to look for supplies but dont expect us to actually buy from them. For one most of us dont have the funds to buy highly expensive mold fabric.
I mean go right ahead yourself no one will stop you. But i certainly will not. Are you making your car for show and competition and all that? Or is this, like most of us, for personal enjoyment and show off to your friends? Cuz if its the latter i would not bother spending so much for fabric. Its not the fabric that will ultimatly be supporting your box... thats what the fiberglass is for. Its jsut to get a nice contoured shape for you to build on.
So long story short, as long as your fabric can absorb a good about of resin to make a good starting shell it will work.
And yeah they can probably buy **** for dirt cheep and in large bulk but if we were to buy it, we would pay an arm and a leg
And just because someone recommends it doesnt mean its the end all. Everyone has their preferences. I saw one AMAZING install where the guy used bottom of the line shark patterend (meaning it has pictures of sharks all over it) fleece his grandma had laying around.
Also if this is your first install do you REALLy want to spend a load of money and then half way through **** the whole thing up and have to start over.
I would buy walmart or other similar fleece just because if you mess up you havent also lost a load of cash.
The best advice I can give for anyone is to not use matte fiberglass and fleece. I've seen way too many people make the mistake of using matte fiberglass when it only makes their job harder. Stick to fiberglass weave, and use spandex instead of fleece. Spandex stretches to shape much better then fleece, and it doesn't absorb nearly as much resin that fleece does. You want fiberglass for strength, not fleece.
