Looks good. Where did you buy the Nidacore ? How is the pieces glued together? And what reisin are you using on the panels? I am interested in The Whole process .tempted to do this myself. I have the skills to do it,but have never worked with this material

www.boatbuildercentral.com
38 mm ( 4x7 sheet)
Most of it I used can foam insulation, where I thought it would need the strength I used Epoxy Resin mixed with fumed silica.
Epoxy Resin and hardener (Slow)
www.fiberglassflorida.com
On website they only go up to 7 1/2 gallons of Resin, but if you call they will send 15 gallon.
I just bought my 3rd 15 gallon of Resin, The Resin has no smell.

Yesterday we put up the back wall and then we did one side of the roof with 2 layers of fiberglass cloth ( will be the outside ) and tomorrow we are flipping it over and doing the other side with one layer of cloth side to side with one strip front to back straight down the middle ( will be the inside ). The roof is 7 feet wide and 16 feet long, all one piece, 4 sheets glued together.

The cloth I used is biaxial mat 1700
2 - 30Ē x 140 yards rolls
The whole project I used 2 layers on the outside and 1 layer on the inside, it might not need two layers on the outside but I did it.
2 layers on the outside cost lots of more money, more cloth and more Resin. Big Dollars 45 gallons and I think I will need some more Resin, how much I donít know?
