School me on Fiberglass
For those of you with fiberglass experience...
I just put on a new winch on my '80 behind the factory bumper - turned out pretty good (if I do say so myself), however, I'd like to make a little cover for it to protect the fairlead, which, cable from the mud, and other road hazards.
I could make it out of the metal, but I thought it would be nice to make it out of fiberglass - though I've never tired it.
I watched some videos on youtube but there is such a dazzling array of applications for fiberglass that I have a hard time picking the right minimal things that I would need.
I would like it to be strong, about 1/4 inch thick and able to take a stone off the road - think it's doable?! Maybe I should combine think metal plate with fiberglass sides that go around the fairlead?! What materials would I need for fiberglass work (mat, resin, hardener) - where do I get it?!
