Default Resin coating.

Hello,

I have a arf that I stripped the covering on. I want to cover it with aluminum tape. So I need to smooth out the surface before applying the aluminum covering tape. Can i get away with just appling a coat of resin to the fuse and sand to fill the wood grain and get a smooth surface, or do I need to use fiberglass with resin?

Fiberglass with the resin. The fiberglass gives it some ding resistance. If you just try to use resin, the plane will be extremely heavy and you will probably never get rid of all the wood grain
