      Hey thorn i saw you mention polycrylic and cheese cloth as an alternative to fiberglass and resin, how strong does it hold up compared to fiberglass?"

      It is listed as the poor mans way, yes. It is a mid grade way of doing things. Mid grade meaning it is still flexible but hard enuff to pass the knock test. This method doesn't work well in hi heat and has a Slow cure time. But for people who are going cheap and/or are not able to work with toxic mat. it is away to do it.
      Best Methods to use.:)
      1.) Resin, Bondo, Rondo, Rondoglass, are the best way to go. Excellent way to go
      2.) Smoothcast 321 is the second best way. (Low order low fums) you can use this and not stink up the house.:cool:

    Spartans aren't born, they're built, thru blood, sweat, and tears. And maybe a little Fiberglass. ;)
