    with 45 min to 1 hr in between) it is fiberglass rated btw, brush, gloves, and some acetone.... im gonna get a respirator when i actually glass in the car but the place i went today only had one and i wasnt a huge fan of it (was over priced and seemed like crap lol), and its gonna be outdoors with a fan at least blowing over it so i think ill be fine for short term use at least lol (correct me if im wrong tho, and ill get a respirator before i start lol)
    You'll still get high off the resin. Its worth the $30 bucks or so, trust me. If you can smell the resin at all your exposed to the fumes, the regular "SARS" mask wont work. I worked outside with a window fan blowing over my working area and it still was a fuming mess.

    Yeah, the resin fumes are nasty as hell, respirator is the must

    you might get away with respirator, and gloves when laying glass, but you should have a full suit when you sand, grind and cut glass

    remember your skin pores breathe too, so technically you get exposed, but when you are outside, it's not really a big deal, but you should know the dangers of it

    I bought a canister mask aka respirator yesterday from home depot for like $31. I can say it seems worth it, i can breathe easier with that than a particle mask
