resin panels

Any discussion on shaping, designing, repairing and riding surfcraft of any type or shape. Also a good place to ask the 'what board should I buy?' question.

resin panels

Anyone know the best tape to use when putting resin panels on a board during the lay up stage-I tried a test with masking tape but it pulls too much at the weave of the cloth. Have tried swaylocks but cant find an answer. Is there a method involving involving" parcel" tape?
thanks for any advice :-D

Without sounding like a dick, cheap masking tape. Hardly any tack in it. Be right.

Is there a reason why you want to do it at lay-up?

I have done panels after laminating and had trouble getting a the resin to lay flat then had to be so careful sanding to avoid sand throughs! Probably over thinking this one but I thought there was a method that could be done during the lam as long as it is done before the resin goes off in order to cut lap at the end. Thanks for the replies will probably go with adding the panels after the lam as it may well be easier.
Thanks again :-D

Panels on the sanded hot-coat are the standard, you need to kick them quickly and pull the tape early - good tape is quite important. Sand them back as much as you can without loosing colour and sand carefully after gloss - done. Don't add too much pigment as this effects the cure time and allows bleeding, darker colours nearly always require less pigment and white needs a little more for a solid cover. Lots of masking paper so you can brush long strokes to get a flat even coat.

You can foam stain them do a tinted inlay then glass over or on the hotcoat depends what effect you are after
