    Has anyone had success with purchasing fiberglass or epoxy off of Ebay?

    There seem to be several highly ranked retailers selling product. Any references would be appreciate. Feel free to PM me if you would not like to post names.

    There were some guys from here and other boat building sites that relayed disaster stories about cheap ebay resins. I'd buy locally or from a trusted supply retailer cause it would be a disaster if it doesn't cure right.

    Ebay is only one step above craigslist...shop a reputable local retailer or order from a specialty shop online. Too expensive to take a chance.

    If its on ebay it must be legit... Not. Probably been sittin on the shelf so long the resin died. Also to my undestanding ups/fedex has problem with shipping flammable materials such as resin, gelcoat, mek,waxsol etc..
