It's easily 95-100 outside every day so that information is great to know. Thank you!

When you get in the shower put some menthol shaving cream anywhere you are itching let it stay on for a couple miniutes and rinse. That works the best.

Thanks for all the tips guys. I didn't think this would be bad, I didn't feel that fiberglass itch until I started sanding. Now I know to be more careful.

sadly no. There's not really a point. The fiberglass is baisically clear. once it dries it's just "the shiny stuff is the fiberglass..."/ New one soon. I'm planning on cranking out some stuff this week.

Can this method be for a fresh water tank also.
I noticed on GARF's website that the plywood tank is titled
"Plywood reef aquarium plans"
It's really fascinating to read these posts and follow the progress.
Good luck
Charles
