    Some people may cheat like me (explain later) or you may want to do everything from scratch. If you do here is complete list of what you will need by name and location. Ebay is a place where you can get ANYTHING. I am sure you can find better prices but this is based on needs and not cost effeciency. There are little odds and ends like tape, scissors, pens and knives that you will need but you may have that around the house already so I did not post items like that. Unless a direct link is given then it I searched for it on Ebay. I am posting the exact titles as they were found. Links are usless because auctions and sales end. Be advised you will need variations of some items such as resin and etc. When you look at the prices also look at the quantity of the item. Some things I went with the better deal, obviously you don't need 2 sets of eyeware and so on. If you need further guidance please veiw the well written tutorials on specific areas.

    23Magnum Well-Known Member

    Agreed. Stickied.

    Note: Keep in mind. Like Ithica said this is not an absolute list and variations may occur.

    Ithica, I know you said it already, but it bares repeating as even with both of us stating it people will ask repeatedly where to get the specific items you've listed.

    Unless I missed it you should add acetone..

    This is used for thinning the resin and cleaning up brushes and spills...

    Walmart has it for under 10 bucks...

    Also a container of disposible plastic cups to mix the resin and hardner in.

    It's a nice list of the pricings of everything and what to get. But as most people will ask... Where will they get all this? Maybe you should include more locations for more of the items such as the under armor.
