Fiberglass rollers are a must for the mat.  I also work a lot with varying strands from 1/2" to 4" in sculpture, so no mat or cloth.  You can make your own with stacked washers, or even coating a tiny brush roller with epoxy...

You guys are full of good info.  Since this is the first time I've worked with this stuff I'm learning as I go.  I've already figured out a thing or two I'd do different on my shape and the way I laid out the pattern.   As far as laying down the resin and mat, the info you guys posted is helpful.   I was aware of using different angles when laying down the mat but didn't know about the different tools.  Now that I've seen them, they make alot of sense.  Thanks for the input gentlemen!

I recently found the part number for the BS38 main jets which have proven difficult to find so far. Search N100.606-SIZE and there are lots of options. I bought some and they fit.  8)

Still have it and it still needs a few layers if I'm going to use it.  I need those roller tools or I need to make some.

The rollers are great but I never use them. I have always just used plastic squeegees similar to the bondo ones.

Squeegees I have.  Maybe I can do some stinky resin stuff this weekend.

That's why I use epoxy resin.  Eet's no stinky.
