    Reinforcing/thickening fibreglass armour? ( UK )

    I just got my fibreglass codpiece and back armour from Frosty.
    Looks GREAT ( Vheers bud! ), but seems a little thin to me for wearing without worry.

    Does anyone know what I need to buy ( In the U.K. ) to thicnek it up a bit?
    Can I just buy resin and mat and add a few extra layers?

    Try U_pol products, You can get a fiberglass resin with fibers in it, it is called P-40 and it is easy to use.

    You just brush that on then? No need for rollers etc?
