Talking Fibreglass!!

Did my first ever bit of fibreglass work today and can safely say it won't be my last!!
Was only repairing one of my seats but the stuffs great and fairly easy to work with!!
Would like to thank Gav as I wouldn't have even attempted it without his pics etc on here!
Will post pics tomorrow of finished article and await feedback

it depends fibreglassing a seat is nothing. But Fibreglassing big parts like stringers etc is a lot more work. Than you have to work a lot faster. That brings stress. That sucks...
