hey there, everyone! So, I dove into the project of covering my defretted fingerboard, so i went to a hardware store and got a bunch of stuff to finish the task. I asked the clerk and he told me they had this package of resin that pretty much matched what i was looking for, so i bought it. For about 4 bucks (yes... 4 bucks ) i got a quart of resin (purple-pinkish syrup like liquid), a smaller flask of a clear hardening catalyst of some sort (peroxide?) and a whole skein of white, thick plastic threads, which i assume, is glass fiber... Now, i got to work and even though the resin was cheap as heck, it turned out to be great... Procedure: I made a mix of 2 parts resin and 1 part of the "catalyst" thingy and the purple-pink color started to change first to dark transparent and to a clear, much more consistent goo. I applyed it to the fingerboard (once sanded and chemically stripped with acetone) and let it dry for a couple of days now. Much to my amazement, the resin didn't even bubble (i didn't have high hopes because i used the crazy glue method and it bubbled to the point of becoming unworkable). Now i'm gonna sand it w/ fine sandpaper and prepare to go the the next step; But THERE is where i find my quandary : Question 1: Should i continue to apply more layers of the resin (which now i swear by ) or should i work with the glass fiber? My dad told me that using the fiber would give me a quite thick surface to work on, so i don't know if i should coat the FB with further layers of resin, at risk of having a way too thick layer and then having to deal with the problems that could carry later on... Maybe i shouldn't even USE the alleged glass fiber on this kind of work? Question 2: If i were to use the fiber, how do i use/mix it? (please, mind i'm the n00best person out there) do i use some of the catalyst too? do i have to heat it? does it dissolve on its own? Enlight me if you please and help me so i don't ruin a work that's going quite well minding it's my first one and the fact that i have 2 left hands (that, being a righty ) STBD PS: Hambone... are you there???
