Question
Fuel proof and fiberglass

I have a (wait for it wait for it) ARF and before i assemble it i would like to fuel proof and add a little bit of fiberglass cloth to the inside of the firewall area. My question is do i do the fiberglass first and then the fuelproofing or the other way around or are these two things not a good mix?

I would probably brush some epoxy in the areas likely to get oily then if you want to further reinforce the area laminate some fiberglass ontop. Best to use a thin laminating epoxy for better penetration into the wood. Although standard 30min epoxy will work okay.

Epoxy is fuel proof. You don't need to use fuel proofing over fiberglass.

Yep, stick on your glass with epoxy or polyester, and your done. Sand it a bit to get the fuzzies off if you want.
