try to stay away from the gel resin, you will thank me later.
I would go with a fiberglass woven cloth, the reason being, if you use a chopped strand mat it will fall apart when you try to smooth it out while applying the resin. Also you should use the Bondo brand clear resin, it comes with the hardener and a mixing bowl. Both you can purchase at walmart or autozone for cheap. I would say about 4 of the pre-cut cloths and two cans of resin should be enough, just make sure you apply a little at a time so you dont waste any resin, and apply it quickly before it hardens.
so fibreglass cloth like this?
and a resin like this?
Thanks for all help guys
I like chop matte myself. You don't brush the resin on with matte (otherwise it will come up with the brush and slosh around), you stipple the resin in. Also use MEK or acetone to lengthen the worktime of your resin.
If you use either, you must be in an extremely well ventilated area and be where a mask. Especially with MEK. You will lose brains cells quick breathing this stuff in!!!
Chop matte works best for curves and corners;, you don't have to try to bend it.
You can cut the cloth into strips. Large pieces of the cloth will only work well on flat surfaces. Do your self a favour and get a roller as well. You will save yourself alot of time sanding!
