    Glassing is an art in itself. It's not just throwing on some resin with a brush. Post a pic of the board you want glassed.

    http://www.surfersteve.com/glassing.htm if you wanna do it yourself.

    or hit me up on PM I'll do it for $100. I just did 1 of mine last week.

    Dude, i know about the cloth and wrap the rails. And glassing the fin on may be hard. I have never done it and want someone with experience to do it right.

    if you post a pic of it (underside). I can tell you what needs to be done. I have a lot of experience in repairs. And, just noticed you are in PA. So, sry I probably won't be able to do it.

    If you can get the board glassed / fin glassed on for $100, that is a great price. You should hit that offer up.

    whats wrong with a plain old fin box?? especially with a homemade board, you want to be able to change around your fin set-up, and they are alot easier to install.
