So I am restoring my first set of floats. Being a first time float planer, I figured I would buy a used set off of a buddy for $20 rather than brand new. I have done quite a bit of reading on it and really feel confident I have them set up right. They do add a bit of weight to the plane being that I went with too big of material, (1/8 x 1 inch and 1/8 x 3/4 inch alum. ). Other than that, I think the angle is good, they are parallel to each other, and super solid. I also cut the tops open and put new plywood and blind nuts because some of the blind nuts originally fell through. My question is that being already so heavy, I'm second guessing my first plan to fiber glass them. I read you can cover th em with one of the mono kote like films. Does it stay stuck or peel off a lot. Do I have any other options? BTW, they are hollow kit floats from probably 20 or more years ago.
