Interior Fiberglass, Filling the Weave

Posted by Zachary Wiest in Epoxy, Fiberglass, Tools

After letting the first fiberglass / epoxy layer cure for about 20 hours, I quickly installed the radio and speakers to make sure the epoxy covering wire run was still functional.  I was a little worried that I had cut one of the wires when trimming away the excess fiberglass, but all was well.  Next, I put down a second coat of unthickened epoxy to fill the fiberglass weave.  This was applied with a thin nap roller.  This second coat was also supposed to cover the rest of the hull (#2/3 panels and rails).  I rolled it on where I could and used a brush on the rails.  Getting into all the rail spacers with a brush and epoxy was tedious, especially when trying to curb epoxy runs.
