    Which Carbon Fiber Epoxy Resin system to use for Crystal Clear Finish

    All,

    I was wondering what you all are using for carbon fiber epoxy resin, there is so many different type of resin out there, with different mix ratio, What I am looking for is a crystal clear finish for dash parts, don't really need strength but could help. I was planing on using Fiber glass as a base and a layer or few of CF on top of it with Crystal clear finish. I am looking at West System epoxy resin and hardener, but this is primarily for boats. Any advise from you all is greatly appreciated. Again I want a epoxy that is used for hand laying and is crystal clear finish.

    Thanks
    CCIE

    Go to this link and call the guy tomorrow. The resin he sold me was top level, clear as water and did exactly what he told me.

    I have been using products from http://www.aeromarineproducts.com/

    1.5 gal of epoxy and hardener for about $94.00

    I had good results from all there products. The hardener has a slight yellow hue to it but you can't tell once it mixes and hardens.
