No problem guys. Just a quick maintenance note on these roller, make sure that you have a glass of Acetone handy for you to soak the roller in to dilute the resin so you can keep the roller clean and free of resin inside the grooves.

got it, real quick question. After my last layer of glass was laid and dried, there are some serious bubbles all over it. I still need to lay a layer or 2 more down so should I sand out these bubbles currently? It's an amp rack so even though the bubbles weaken it some, the rack should still be plenty strong. Also on that same note, if I don't have time to put all the layers I need at once,do I have to sand it a bit the next day before laying more glass or just lay the glass without sanding?

drill a hole in them and fill them with a syringe full of resin/hardener mix. Or else you will have to sand all the way through the layer above the bubble and then fill the dip in with resin.

This would take to long, I would be better off sanding it down....

lol yes Air bubbles - Page 2 - Last Post -- posted image. This has been the biggest project I have done at once so alot of area to cover and for some reason the glass would not stick so I ended up with a ton of bubbles. I don't think it will hurt anything, I won't be able to paint it thats for sure unless I do a ton of prep work. Then again, I plan to make a glass cover to go over the main rack since I am going to have to cut holes in it anyway in strategic places to run all of the amp wiring and stuff. So I would like to avoid the bubbles for next time.

I find as well as a roller, use a stiff (or 'sawn off') paint brush and stippling. This works well with chop strand, as it helps dissolve the binder and get the glass 'into' the resin on the job, rather than 'on' the resin.
