I see we agree LOL

I never stated you could bond fiberglass to metal with resins in any of my posts! I was only trying to make clear the different resins and materials! for young readers I do bond glass or carbon fiber to metal but its a different process then just brushing on resin and sticking them on! and like Brian I have stiffened up or made complete floors out of fiberglass or Kevlar and have filled small holes in floors after epoxying and then laying out cloth and resin! and never had a lamination let loose Except when I was young and learning!!

I like Evercoat Ive tried others but keep coming back to Evercoat!
Large overhead areas are hard by myself and messy I use rolled material (like a paper towel roll) and when the resin is tacky enough to hold the weight I roll out the material a few inches at a time and with a roller I press it down and smooth out the wrinkles The corners are the hardest I usually have to re wet them! For very large areas I use helpers! I also buy thinner mat so its not as heavy! The vertical large areas are easy with the right laminating resin! The trick is in the mix, and when you apply the mat! every day its different so I mix test pots to see what mix works best mix too hot its not as tacky! ETC
