Slide frame welded from bent tubing
Chicken wire was welded to the frame and bent into position to hold the fiberglass in place while the resin cures.
Fiberglass cloth is cut to size and laid in place.
Polyester resin is applied
Resin cured too fast due to a) no data sheet b) language barrier and c) confused salespeople
After attempting to smooth out the bottom with body putty, I ended up fiberglassing it in for appearance and safety
The top of the slide after several layers of 2-part body putty and red glazing putty, sanded and ready for primer.
Primer applied with spray gun
2-part epoxy top coat sprayed on bottom of slide
2-part epoxy sprayed on top. I love this paint (Jotun Penguard Enamel).
