well...a DO for fiberglass, take your time and make sure the projects is prepped right.  i was doing a basic project that i didn't prep proper and it didn't show it's ugly face untill i put the paint on. and i couldn't just sand and start over, had to completly start over.  just glad it wasn't a customers peice...would have lost loads of money on that.

Planning, and then checking fitment as you proceed through the steps.  Don't assume that because it fit with the fleece stretched it is going to fit after you get done with all the layers of glass.  Done eat it is a good tip, although if you get the bondo brand and you put a thin layer of resin down it kinda looks like peanut brittle and it's tempting.

Hahhahha you should have told me this before i started my enclosure.  Had to get a jigsaw and cut large patches outof my completed mould cuz of my stupidity.  So planning and test fitting is cruital, ive neva ate bondo or FG but iam sorta hungry atm, and ive got lots of sandig to do. HAHAHAHA

I found the easiest way to avoid the none fitment after fleece is to secure the fleece to the INSIDE, not the outside of the enclosure

yeah, a refund. that stuff is just way to thick, and it doesnt spread. you could fix any dents in your car with it but i dont think you could build an enclosure
