I have done some reinforcing as you described, it works well.

You need to lightly sand the surface before applying the resin. The cloth should be in the smallest pieces you can handle since the spots that normally need work are compound curves and corners. You want the cloth to stay flat, not bridge, big pieces will tend to bridge in corners. Over curves the big sections are fine.

If you have holes I recommend using some blue masking tape on the outside. This will allow the resin to fill the void, and with a bit of sanding afterword offer a nice surface to repaint. Be sure to remove the tape in the first hour or so after layup.

Tom, unfortunately the $25.00 is a surcharge for oversized/overweight items, and not for a better shipping container.
This is from personal experience, Andy would just be passing along an additional fee. The box it comes in may be a little more heavy-duty, but that is just because it is bigger, and the shroud is more fragile.

That was not the way his worker explained it to me. The $115 charge handled the oversized/overweight category, and the $25 charge was to put the "bulky" item into what was apparently a specially made box. It sounded like the shrouds sit on the shelf unboxed.

I appreciate your personal experience, but that's what I was told.

I still think the total S&H charges are extreme for the price & actual weight of the particular item. But Andy is in the catbird's seat with this particular item, and I have no problem with his marketing strategy. With vintage Airstreams, "You play, you pay"
