Hello, I am wondering if for an alternative to bondo could I use my aqua resin and just mix a lot mote hardener (the powdery stuff) then the liquid? So I can have a bondo like substance that is non toxic and indoor user friendly?
This is a good question. When you lay down the initial spray, you just need enough to adhere the fiberglass, not to cover the entire inner surface. Just a light spray to make the surface tacky to stick the pieces of fiberglass cloth into it. This will leave enough space between the fiberglass cloth and the surface of the item to adhere it. Also, depending on what you plan to use as the hardening medium, it might dissolve the glue, which would take care of the little places that are covered by the adhesive.Question regarding laying of fiberglass cloth: I read from multiple posts about first tacking the fiberglass in place (with a spray adhesive, say) and then brush the resin on. How well does this work? I mean, if the glass is glued to the surface, that would imply to me that resin doesn't exist between the glass and the surface, only wicked up within the glass's fibers instead. So the primary bonding medium of the cloth to the surface is mostly the adhesive rather than the resin. This is working out for people? Or, does the resin manage to seep between the cloth and mix with the adhesive? I was planning to use a spray version of Elmer's white glue, unless there's a different product that gives better results...? Thanks.
so I've applied a layer of fiberglass resin on the outside. I made the mistake of trying to coat both helmets at the same time. I ended up with clumps if resin. what is the best way to remove these clumps?
Any tips on getting the paper soaked ?
