    Default Where in Calgary can you find cheap fiberglass resin?

    Well I've been working on my doorpannels and finished off the last of my old resin I had laying around from when I built my hood, now I need more!

    I've just been picking up some from CrappyTire for not a bad price, $13 or so for a kit that comes with 1L can of resin, hardener, a bunch of matting, and an applicator. But there should be a body shop supply store I can pick up Gallon cans for cheap. Everywhere I call carries Gallon cans but it's about $45 - $50 (which is about 3.7L I believe) or I can get 4 of those kits for about the same price but it comes will all the extra's

    So I was just curious if there was someplace someone knows of that sells cheap resin, cause I have alot of matting already so I don't really have any use for the extra's in the kit.

    I read some old posts and one guy said Rona was the cheapest for resin so I'll probably go check that out today. But any other input would be appriciated.

    Yeah it works alright. The cheapest place I've found is Industrial Plastics & Paints by Chinook, $42 per gallon or about 3.8L

    It's cheaper then CanTire by about $1.50 per litre but you don't get the applicator or matting like with the kit. Soooo... I'll probably end up buying a gallon can cause I have loads of matting left from doing my hood.

    But yeah, just a heads up for anyone in the future looking for place to get resin.
