Much cheaper than the chandlers for this. Don't forget the hardener comes separately and if real adhesion or strength is required use epoxy!!
I recommend this product!

The David's Fastglas Hardener is for use with David's Fastglas Resin.
 

Davids fibre glass

Resin comes in 500ml ,hardener states 3cm for 10ml, how do you work this out, last attempt resulted in a gel that hardened after 5 mins and had to be sanded off
Bought off ebay recently a product where you added the whole tube to 2x 500ml and it worked fine

David's Isopon P40 is a glass fibre compound ideal for bridging holes & rust.
 

Can it be opened then stored for later use?

If I only need to use a small amount now, can the remainder in the tub be stored and used at a later time?

Yes, should last a long time but may set quicker as it gets older. Better to buy a new tube of hardener if it's very old

I've been there and failed. Petrol tanks are very hard to fix.

Halfords Rubbing Compound makes your paintwork look its best.
 

Can rubbing compound be used on matalic paint

Metallic paint is usually 'clear over base' lacquer over metallic basecoat so you can polish the lacquer as long as you don't grossly overdo it and go through

I am repairing an old galvanized water tank. Would it be better to use P38 or P40 or indeed another product. I wish to use the tank for collecting

Fibreglass or epoxy would be better

David's FastGlas Resin is for use with glass fibre matting or tissue.
 

what color remains when dry?

Once the product dries out, what color is it? Also, is it easy to paint after the job is done?

slightly green/golden. Normally you would leave the fibreglass slightly low and bring it up level with polyester filler like P40
