Hi,
Anyone have any tips or links for working with fibreglass.
I have never used it before but want to do the following with the side vents:

If I was you I would look for a spare set of vents to try this out on if you have never worked with fibre glass before, if it goes tits up you still have your originals on and won't have to worry about what to do then.

I have done a bit of fibreglassing and his instructions are pretty spot on.

The mix is very important and have everthing ready cut, brushes & spare brushes etc all sitting nearby. It easy enough to work with and as you are cleaning down the outside I wouldn't worry to much about the look inside.

Once you start move quickly and smoothly as if the mix is wrong it can harden alot quicker than you think. Work the resin into each layer of fibreglass completly, don't paint it on, dab it down into the weave.

Do it outside if you can as the fumes can get a bit heavy man!
