the basics

After a couple of years of laying glass, I've settled in on a very effective method of performing a surface lamination over core cell foam. Here are the simple steps that I use:

1. build mold
2. fasten foam to mold
3. skim coat the surface of the foam w0 micro and epoxy
4. let cure to the touch and rough sand any slight imperfections
5. roll out a good wet coat of epoxy using 3/8 Knapp half roller
6. roll out glass
7. roll top coat of epoxy and let soak down into the epoxy that is soaking upwards
9. roll on the peel ply
10. use bondo spreaders to smooth out excess resin in the direction of lamination.......do 3 to 4 ft sections at a time moving in one continuous direction.

works for me........
