Thanks for the advice Land Shark. I have allready decided Home Depot is not the place.
There is a little more to this than I thought .
I still am going to carry on with the project. As I mentioned before I found a marine shop that carries West System Epoxy .Somebody had mentioned thier product earlier in thread.
I might just order from your guys It isn't going to get done this weekend anyway.LOL
Thanks again. Your info is very helpful.
I noticed something else on my failed attempt I might have a problem getting the sides to stay up .Will see what happens when I get new material to work with.

Okay Zep, your fiberglass pans must be out of the mold by now and everyone else has had a chance to throw comments out. How did they turn out? Is this something a novice like me might try.

I've had to postpone this until after the ABQ Balloon Festival. Hope to know more in Oct-Nov.

I am interested as well in your project! I followed the post for a while and thought you were on the right path. (I am an ex custom boat builder and have made a lot of fiberglas parts). I think I have used gallons and gallons of West System. The important thing with West System (or any epoxy) is to not let it get on your skin. Some people get hyper-allergic after a period of time. Several layers of light cloth/mat are best. Maybe 4oz. I think most anybody can mold as it is not that difficult if you take your time and think it out. So - how did it turn out???
