I know very little about materials. How to build up fiberglass (like, what's the difference in resin and filler and bondo), how and when to use a wire or wood or paper mache frame, what kind of metal works, where to get it, how to cut it, how to fasten it. What are some ideas for the final covering and where can you get materials like fake wood and vinyl and how to put it all on so the sun won't destroy it....

Love this place!
