Hi everyone!! - I have read many an article about fiberglass repair. However, I would prefer having the opportunity of actually seeing a video from start to finish. Most of the wedsites want customers to buy their DVDs. My next thought would be the library, but they are closed today. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.-

just used the tap plastic gel coat today. Great product. however in the video he uses a piece of plastic to cure the top of the coating. in doing this on the first layer i found that if you slightly move the plastic it will create bubbles. on the second layer i used the hair dryer method. go with that it works great and no bubbles. i also found you have about 20 min of time after you mix catalyst so you have plenty of time. Also instead of having to do many coats. i found that if you coat a layer and then hit it with the hair dryer for a min or so it will thicken up enough to add a second coat with a liberally amount of gel coat on the brush. once again great product.
