Would not believe how many times it is a case of the forest and the trees. Look at how many times your parents told you it was a snake it would've bit you.

I have a question for you veteran builders...

I'm getting ready to apply the fiberglass cloth pretty soon, but I've never done that before. I purchased West System 105 resin and 206 hardener (slow cure hardener).

A step by step description of the process would be greatly appreciated! Obviously I want to do a good job while keeping the weight down to a minimum. Any tricks to help minimize how much finish sanding required, would also be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
Anthony

Mix it for a LONG time... then mix it some more... I usually mix slow epoxy for 5 minutes.

Are there any pics of the Vein Blue fuse? I'm curious to know how it looks since I ordered my EXL in Vein Blue also.

Thx,
Brian

We met for dinner last nite but he didn't have any blue fuses with him.

He did tell me the blue is a royal blue.
