Re: Fiberglass this Weeke

I've put on the glass, and am getting ready to do the first fill coat. It is taking a long time to rework the flaws from the wetting out.

If I had it to do over, knowing what I know now, I would

1. completely fill in all plywood panel joint gaps before glassing

2. practice butting (lap, slit, remove waste strip, smooth edges down and together) pieces of glass before doing the real thing.

3. not do the wetting out in short bursts, but do as much as I could in one sitting.
