    Nov 24, 2007, 9:47 PM - Cleaning up bucket interior........ #1

    I need to clean up the interior of my latest build.....It's something I've never bothered with, but this ones coming along very nicely. I thought about using fiberglass matting but have no clue whether the resin and what not will react poorly with the ABS or Sintra this thing is made of.
    Does anyone have any experience with this and if so, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
    Josh

    You can add fiberglassing in your plastic helmet. Use a very low grit sand paper to add a texture surface to the inside of your helmet. This gives something for the fiberlass to grab on to. I would also not fiberglass it to the edge and leave a quarter inch all the way around on your edge and use epoxy putty to ensure the fiberglassing dosnt get pulled up.

    Thank you sir.
    I get what you're saying about the edge......good thinking. I'll add a 1/4 of the 3mm sintra for the bottom lip, think it'll look a bit cleaner.
