Any other Ideas would be awesome. keep em commin!
Yeah, if your making some sort of container, wrapping the form in anything is a problem. I was just posting some info in case someone might not have used fiberglass much and didn't know.
Caution! I give opinions as if they were worth something. Use at your own risk.
