    Few Fiberglass Questions

    Ok guys I have a few questions you can probably answer... first of all I want to make sure im not gonna be getting ripped off on supplies at Lowes, so i was wondering if someone could tell me what they usually pay for the seperate supplies required for fiberglassing...

    Second, what other supplies besides resin, hardener, mat/cloth, brushes, respirator, and gloves will i need?

    I think thats it for now... thanks for the help

    Don't go to lowes or home depot, you can find the stuff cheaper at other places. Try to find a boat reapair shop or boat supply store, you can get the supplies cheaper from them. You could also try some auto supply shop as well.

    alright well lowes is the closest place with 2 hours of me that carries the supplies for fiberglassing, my only other option would be to order online... anyone get their supplies online? if so, where?
