I am a newbie shaper and was wondering if fiberglass cloth gets clear when resin is put on it because the resin that i got from foamez.com is not. please help
yes. and if you look a little bit harder you will find better glass at a far cheaper price.
your lam resin should have a greenish hue to it…it will harden clear.
I was wondering what make a glass good or not good. Can you recommend any places (preferably in So Cal) that has good glass at good prices? I was thinking of buying a roll.
Try crystaliner in costa mesa… http://www.crystaliner.com/fiberglass-products-page.html
S cloth 6oz. 30" wide - $3.65/yard ($0.20 cheaper than foamez)
S cloth 6oz. 38" wide - $4.25/yard
Haven’t tried them but maybe next board.
i have found that bgf aerialite glass is really good and the least expensive on the market. there was a post a while back about the quality of glass.
you might want to ask your local supplier if they have short roles of glass often times you can get it at drastic discounts. i got 42 yards at $2.43 a yard
Sweet. I’ll give 'em a holla…
In Santa Barbara, there’s Fiberglass Hawaii right over by state street.
Want to buy a roll too. The problem is I live in Mexico. E-glass here is pretty expensive, about 60 dlls per board (that’s the reason I’m using choped strand mat). About a month ago I found an U.S. online store where you could buy a 125 yards roll of aerialite for about 180 dlls, but lost their e-mail…
Does anybody knows where can I find rolls of e-glass at good prices, in the south-Texas area? Also, if they ship to Mexico that would be great.

Is this what you were thinking of?
Yes, after all I found their mail, it was lost in a cd backup I made about 2 months ago. They said “we’ll contact you as soon as we get info about shipping to Mexico”. not yet…
Does anybody knows anything about them? seem to manage a great variety of FG, and their prices look quite good.
