In the coming weeks I will be starting to buy materials for my Flying Saucer and need to know what I need to get for epoxy. I think I did the calculations correctly based on what I have read on the Glen-L site for Poxy Shield and Poxy Grip, but need your opinions on whether or not this will be enough for my intended project.
I am building a Flying Saucer which I will be stretching to 13'6", and have this on my "to buy" list for epoxies:
(1) Glen-L Flying Saucer Fiberglass Kit
(2) Poxy-Shield #1 Kits (1 Qt. each), for encapsulating
(1) Poxy-Shield #2 Kit (1 Gallon), for encapsulating
(1) Poxy-Grip 1/2 Gallon Kit, for gluing structural members
I basically bought what Glen-L recommends for the Zip for Poxy-Shield as it's better to have too much than not enough. No sense in paying shipping more than once.
Also, what kind of solvent should I be using to make sure I don't have any amine blush between epoxy coats, and for general cleaning for preparation? Just denatured alcohol, or do you guys have a specific suggestion?
Please feel free to comment on my other thread in the Paint subforum regarding what paint and varnish to use and what amounts to purchase as well. Thanks!
