    any organic vapor respirator for resin, any p100 filter for sanding and shaping. the google function is your friend. a quick google search popped up top 3 results all being surfboard respirator, 1 of which is Greenlight.

    A simple dust mask for shaping. I use 3M's N95, 8511, which is also rated for fiberglass, so I sand with them too.

    3M's 6001 double cartridge respirator for glassing. Make sure it fits tightly and you are clean shaven.

    I am going to greenlight tomorrow or thursday,

    What tools do I need?

    I want to shape a single fin shortboard that's around 20 inches wide but the kit comes with a thruster glass on set up and I was gonna get the uv cure resin so I don't have mix and worry about time, should I do the kit and regular resin for the first time or can I go the other way?

    I want to do something like the polder hull design, look it up it's pretty neat

    Will it be to hard?

    He has a patent on it. Can I still make it?

    Thanks guys
    Right on man.

    Let me know how it goes over at Greenlight when you're finished. I hear the guys are super nice and very helpful... I have never shaped my own board but looked into Greenlight the other day and was thinking about shaping a board over there.

    Thank you Brian, I'll be in tomorrow around noon when you open and is it ok if I bring my respirator in because I don't know if it's rated for glass or fiberglass? Will you have anyone in the shaping room tomorrow around that time?
