    I can't see what's in your shopping cart at styletuning but U-POL is the brand of filler I use.

    Yep, that's what you need for fibreglass. Then you need a filler to smooth the outer surface.

    Yes. You fibreglass the inside of a part for strength. Then the filler is for the outer surface to make it smooth.

    OK ! I understand ^^
    Just one question to make it really sure : is this the filler ? http://www.styletuning.com/resine-up...r-p-41003.html or this is a part of the fibreglass step ? I think it's the filler but I want to be sure at 100%

    That's fibreglass resin. You use that with fibreglass sheet/cloth to make it solid/rigid. You need a seperate filler for the outer surface.

    amazing man hey what do you use to coat the cardstock in one reason i went with cardboard over pep files is because of how thin the cardstock is how the hell did you get it so thick and even like that

    Bondo/car body filler. That seals in the card and smooths out the final piece.

    skip says about 4 posts above that the models are for sale via his blog. he spends a lot of time developing them, so it's only fair that he get some modest compensation for the effort
