    Default Layering resin and finishing resin

    Is it necessary to use a layering resin and a finishing resin. Guy at my supply shop says I'll need the build up layers with layering bad do a final later with finishing. First repair. Replacing steel fuel tanks with alum. Thanks for the help.

    If you use a laminating resin (layering resin) you will not have to sand between layers so you can build your lay up but when your done it will be a little sticky and will clog sand paper. Finish resin has a wax solution that rises to the top and seals as it hardens much easier to sand. You can use finish resin to do layers but you will need to sand between coats. If you don,t want to buy Finish resin there is a wax solution that you can add to laminating resin.

    Thanks! It will be covered by carpet so I'm not concerned about sanding. Does that change things?

    What kind of resin are you using? I dont think there is a layering resin with exopy? There is a window of time if you want to add more layers to do it in. If outside that window, you must sand between layers. This is my novice opinion.
    As far as carpeting over tacky resin? When l have cut corners, it always bites me later in an unexpected way. Causing me to do it over.

    I read on here somewhere about alum tanks springing pin holes from vibration when rigidly mounted... Should I be worried? We just figured if the original steel tanks held up with this mounting and design for 40 years that the new alum ones would too...
