Carbon Fiber/Fiber glass Help

So I wanted to attempt to make my own fiberglass/carbon fiber engine cover just to test things out. I was wondering if someone could help me out with resins and hardeners and such, I got a bunch of questions.

If you only make one it may get very expensive by the time you buy supplies and make a mold.

If no hits here, Lots of good sites around to get you started.

thats going to be a lot harder than you think! ive worked with both carbon fiber and fiberglass. CF is very delicate before you start laying down resin so id be careful lol
