Fiberglassing

Doing a fiberglass job

First fiberglass job today. This is just a thin piece of about two layers of chopped strand mat and poly (instead of stronger and more expensive epoxy). It will be glued onto the back of the dashboard where some old instruments were cut out, and then we can fill the old holes in against that backing and drill holes for the new instruments.

Two pieces glued in using 5-minute epoxy. 5 minutes is a long time when you are contorted to hold the pieces there until it sets.
