    I just got my resin bucket in the mail....and wondering does anyone else bondoglass or fiberglass these or leave them as is? It seems fairly sturdy as is, but feedback requested please.

    I've never glassed a resin bucket. They are plenty sturdy.

    I fiberglass all my buckets, basically because the fibers will keep the bucket from shattering if dropped, also makes it a bit more impact resistant as you are effectively putting a weave in between to hold the thing together.

    But with thick resin buckets, it's usually not needed.
