This instruction manual answers all your questions, both theoretical and practical, about crafting with glassfibre, or GRP (glass reinforced plastic).

It is really a pocket reference for anybody who works with any type of GRP including Kevlar and carbon fibre. It starts with a brief history lesson and then leaps into the different materials, their pros & cons, how to work with them in many ways, how to mould, laminate, repair - anything from scale models to full sized cars, yachts, furniture, water tanks, fish ponds and more.
