[quote]Do you really want to know? Ran into a few problems.
1st. off I tried glassing last fall
in our garage, it stunk up the whole house so had to wait till this spring to carry on outside.
2nd. Once the weather got warm enough to do it outside I ran out of resin, went to Canadian Tire and they were out of it.
3rd. I had to spend over a month ripping apart and totally rebuilding our sun deck and repainting all our fences.
4th. Got more resin and let it harden and when I was sanding with the belt sander the cord got caught in the belt and stripped the timing belt. Ordered a new one which took over a week to the tune of $30
This turning into a saga
I am working on it in between other things. One mistake I made was not
embedding enough wood framing near the ends of the bottom panel.
After I glassed it, it curled.
I of all people should know better! Anyhow I can fix it by making a couple of slices on the saw, flatten it and re-glass that part.
After I get it sanded, apply a skiff coat of Bondo, primed, sand and paint
it it will look fine.
By using the cardboard as a base it is very light
and surprisingly strong. I know helicopter rotor blades are done much the same way but they use a plastic honey comb celled material inside and then cover with a polycarbonate or similar material.
Once I get it done I will post some pics.
Sorry to hear things haven't been going well with your project. I'm sure it will all be worth it though in the end, and they will look as great as all of your other "fab" projects!
