Fiberglass Mess pt. 2

There is no way to get good pictures of this, but suffice to say it is the messiest project EVER! The end product will be nice, but man, what a job. We just finished fiberglassing the shower by hand. We chose fiberglass out of necessity because of all the crazy angles in the shower and no other wall panel or covering would have worked. It just looks like wet wood in the photos, but it’s done! Waiting for it to dry now, then a final sanding down before coating with marine paint.

The bonus: Brad now says that I am his hero. I’ll take it.

Tip – when working with resin wear clothes that you’re ok with throwing away afterward.

Fiberglass Mess

We started fiberglassing the shower today, and can you say MESSY?! Brad confessed about two minutes in that his temperament couldn’t handle fiberglassing, but we found our groove – me applying the fiberglass and him keeping me supplied with strips of mat and mixed resin. There’s still more to do, but I’m treating it like a fun art project (paper mache?). We are both on the OCD side, so big messes are stressful, but there is just no way to do this without making a big mess. So, we will embrace it!
