The instructions were simple and easy to follow. The kevlar sucked up all the resin, and swelled thick. I placed cling wrap over all the skidplate as it dried, to have a smoother surface. Works and looks great.

The price for the skid plates was reasonable. The instructions were simple enough. I agree with RiverJunkie about the color issue. So I purchase a green dye for the resin, still not dark enough, but at least not yellow on my green canoe. I was only able to use one skid plate because I destroyed the first one because the resin harden to fast. I would not pour the entire can of hardener into the resin, this way you can control the thickness and hardening of the product. This may take a little longer to dry. Even though the instruction warn you about working this product in certain temperatures. It was a perfect day and the correct temperature and still the resin harden to quickly to the point you couldn't spread it on the kevlar. I was disappointed in the first process but the second time around yielded better results.

I was rather pleased with how easy the process is. My recommendation is to pour the mixture over the felt, while on cardboard, to let it soak in. Curing time is fairly quick. All in all extremely durable. I feel like i can drag my canoe with out any reprocussions anymore.

I installed the skid plates and have taken the canoe out a couple times already. The river I canoe on is shallow and I cannot take the trip without a dragging bottom a few times each trip. These skid plates are tough!
