I decided to cover the fender in fiberglass, and go with fiberglass scales. I must be getting old, I thought someone could really get hurt on those metal spikes. Two layers of glass applied. I used the last of my Entropy Resin epoxy resin, bummer. For anyone who does a lot of glass or carbon layups, I highly recommend it. Almost no odor, and dries crystal clear. This isn't an advertisement, just spreading the word about an alternative to West epoxy.
