what type of masking tape did you use? the blue stuff will pull off really good. it should be easy to take the glass/tape mold with a little force, then you just rip off any loose tape and glass right over it.

pull harder, and for future reference, check to see how well the tape pulls off before you start. i would just use blue painters tape.

did you lay it on metal?

you should have probably layed some foil down too. some resin might have seeped through the tape, which will be VERY bad for whatever is underneath.

just keep pulling, hopefully its just giving you a hard time.

yep. build up on inside on the mold, then the outside of the fabric. doesnt matter on the fabric, because its just open space. build up on the outside of the mold though, and it wont fit anymore.

kool, i have no airbubbles at all so i that part is all good, but i don't know if i made the box big enough so i may have to toss it back into the car and continue up on it, hopefully not, i'll just stuff the box with poly fill

you can measure box volume with packing peanuts. you should do that before you resin over the fabric.

use duct tape and foil. the resin can not stick to those. but good luck with the project.

duct tape would be damn near impossible to pull away from the plastic body panels though

if you just lay a ton of wax on the body panels it shouldn't stick to them, and you wouldn't have to lay any tape. But if you missed a spot or put it on too light in an area you are in some trouble.
Also I am not sure if you had lumps or air bubbles sounded like you said there were not air bubbles, lumps may be the type of mat you used.(it is hard to tell unless I saw them) Either way you can sand them down.

PVA release is actually what the industry uses. Turtle wax works great. For the beginners, check this tutorial out - http://www.able-audio.com/tutorials/glass/glass.php

You know the correct way to use PVA is to use a partig wax with it correct?

There are also a few types of PVA, not all of them will work for application as such.

actually you just pull it off and it's gone. then get some vinyl cleaner and it will remove the sticky substance.
