    Glass question

    How many gallons of epoxy resin and gardener should I buy for doing a rocker nose job and a flat deck hood shave ? As well as how many yards of glass do you guys think ? And would 635 be good enough

    Re: Glass question

    I would guess 1 gallon of resin + hardener? at the most, I bought that amount and fixed some holes, widened my tray, used some for/with filler. Glass would all depend on weight and style (chop mat or woven) but they are both fairly inexpensive, 4 - 6 yards x 50" ? Make sure you do some research / watch some videos on fiberglassing if you haven't done much. It definitely has limitations and can get pretty frustrating especially on anything curved or with a profile, (air pockets are your enemy)

    1 gal should be perfect and I would expect that you will have at least 1/3 left over.

    I live in Canada, but I ordered from us composites, I used their epoxy as well. worked good for me. I bought both the 6.75 and the 13.5 oz mat. and also a 6 oz twill weave cloth, cloth conforms and lays well on contours, buy some of each and see what you like cause the glass is probably the cheapest part.
