In this video I am using laminating poly resin, 1.5 oz csm and 1708 bi-axial glass. In order to ensure a good bond onto the plywood it is essential to pre-coat the surface with resin! Not doing so will almost certainly result in a dry layup and de-lamination 🙁 Not good… In total, I used 12oz of resin to pre-coat the surface and layup all the glass shown in the demo. The fin roller I used to establish the radius on the fillet is 1/2″…
This project was a true test of patience! Duct tape… Baked on duct tape…. To remove the adhesive I used Naptha VM&P (which is safe to use on most polycarbonates). The black caulking was Dow Corning 795 and the white compound for mounting the hatch back onto the deck was 3M 4000UV. I think everything is pretty straight forward, if you have any questions of comments please leave them below! Thank you!
