maybe i could clear up at least point 1) and 3)..after all everyone must decide if he wants to spend a dime on his health or not.
bit of a n00b in regards to this..and i dont think i'll ever do my own fibreglassing cos i dont think i need any done!...but... does the same go for sanding back/prepping FG for paint? you mentioned grinding and cutting, which is i can understand, but would straight up sanding produce enough dust to warrent the use of the mask?

Need parts? Contact
