I need some advise on a good book on laying up and finishing fiberglass.  I am building a RV-9 and although my sheetmetal skills are OK , I know really nothing about working with glass.

Thanks,

C.Garland

Hi Charles,

You can get great fiberglass instructions free from www.fibreglast.com. look under the Learning Center on the top menu.

Also, look for the book entitled "Composite Basics" by Andrew Marshall. Always buy books used on Amazon, they are about a third of the original price.

I can recommend "Composite Facts" from Sonja Englert. This book has everything you need from mixing resin for the first time to different fiber materials to tools and techniques. And it is easy to understand with many pictures. Look at www.caro-engineering.com for a more thorough description.
