    great tutorial. the background music was a little unnecessary and made it difficult to hear at times. also the shaky camera seemed to be very off-putting. but thanks for the info! this is my first time applying resin to pep and there's alot to learn

    wait does the resin make the fiberglass not itchy?

    Not sure what you mean exactly.

    Fibreglass as such isn't itchy, only small fibreglass particles that may break off are itchy. Once it's encased in resin, nothing can break off, obviously - unless the piece completely breaks.

    Hey crackhead, im new to this, in fact, im getting my pep papers printed tommorow! im going to be making a recon helmet. . Good first build or nah. . ? Anyway, only time will tell eh? So, i was wondering, i saw you put those fiberglass mats inside, but only resining the outside. Could you explain please? Also, i see that people also put putty on top of the reson to smooth it and to make it sturdier. How many layers of resin and putty would you reccommend for something that should be able to take a BB? (just an enquiery :rolleyes) Also, about the visors, how do i even make that? o_O Sorry if i bother you. Hope you have a great day!
    Cheers!
