After the felt, when you are putting the fiberglass resin over it, are you also applying any actual fiberglass sheets, or are you only putting the resin on?

Since I used the MDF as a support behind the fleece, there's no need to add fiberglass. If your project can't have a backing in it like MDF, then you would need to reinforce with fiberglass cloth or mat. If possible, do this from behind as opposed to on the front. That way there is less bodywork to do, and less detail will be lost

Ah, beautiful. Thanks!

We're working on a 78 fiat spider and I am definitely going to use this for a better looking dash! Thank you, great video!

It looks easy on your video. Question, how easy is to do this for the first time?

Awesome video!

This was my second time, so I think anyone can do this. I don't work with these materials very often either. It's a SLOW process, but nothing about it is very hard.
