    How I fiberglass with polyester resin. A DIY how to.

    One thing is matt glass is glued together with a polyester base glue. Epoxy resins will not disolve the glue and the matt will not form.

    cb650 cafe seat

    fiberglass woes

    Temperature is a huge factor also. I get the cheap 4 for a dollah hard plastic cups for the dollar store and mix 4 oz. at a time.
