From the Orca Boats series of videos on wood strip kayak building. This video shows the basic steps in fiber glassing a wood strip kayak hull using epoxy resins.
This video will explain the different types of fabric reinforcement, and how to select the one that is right for you. These fabrics and a wide selection of polyester and epoxy resins are available on our website at tapplastics.com.

After much debating we decided to try fiber-glassing the belly of the Skywalker. I a store nearby I found the light fiberglass. I asked the person in charge about what resin will work best on a RC Plane for rough landings. We agreed that epoxy could be too hard and brittle. I needed something hand and flexible. He suggested "EnviroTex Lite" and explained how to mix it and how to apply it. This is my first fiber-glassing ever!! It turned out to be easy and so far it looks great! Next is see how it behaves in the landings. The surface looks smooth, hard and flexible. It is light, very light.
From the Orca Boats series of videos on cedar strip canoe building. The fiberglass and resin are applied to the inside.
In this video of the video series "How to Build a Surfboard", I laminate the bottom of the surfboard. I didn't cut the relief cuts for the nose and tail before glassing as I was trying something new (tinting the board). The lamination for the deck video shows the proper way to do it, see the link below. Also in this video is installation of the Futures Fin boxes during the lamination. Correction the correct measurement by weight for the Resin Research epoxy is 100 resin to 45 hardner. http://www.resinresearch.net/id8.html Laminating the Deck video shows how to tuck the rails including the nose and tail sections: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1usGqx68L8 Here is the playlist for the video series: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHeE1mcmnNBSXs0ymSgrxwF5od6gqvX07 Music: "Wall...

In an effort to reduce weight on Seven, IMW used tips and tricks learned from Edison2 at the Progressive Automotive X PRIZE Shakedown event. Kevin and Patrick show how to use peel ply and fiberglass to re-create and replace the heavy trunk lids and hood.
This HOW TO FIBERGLASS video is from the The Original YOUTUBE Series of 35 or so videos on How To Fiberglass. We make a custom Ford style scoop in this video... We are one of the few professional fiberglass crews on YOUTUBE... we are also the VERY FIRST How To Fiberglass guys on YOUTUBE.... Between the 4 of us Fiberglass people, we have over 100 years combined experience in fiberglass Mold Making, Fiberglass Fabrication, Lay-Up etc..etc..etc.. You wouldn't believe just how many famous hot rods we have been a part of!!! .... Videos may be a bit old and crude but we are NOT FILM MAKERS or Very Computer Literate.... But when it comes to REAL fiberglass fabrication, we are Number 1

Laying out fiberglass, wetting it out with epoxy, removing the excess and applying a fill coat. For this particular boat this will not be the last coat of glass on the hull. Another layer will be added after attaching the deck. Some of the techniques I used in this video are based on that expectation. For more information about this video visit: http://www.guillemot-kayaks.com/guillemot/blog/nick/fiberglassing_hull This series of videos shows the steps of building a wooden kayak using the "strip-planked" or "strip-built" method. This particular boat is a double paddle canoe design called the microBootlegger by Guillemot Kayaks. More information about the boat is available at http://www.guillemot-kayaks.com .
