Got this kit for my royalex Mad River Explorer Canoe,1994 garage queen purchased in showroom condition. After a few uses decided it would be best to add the kit. After watching you tupe vidios and reading reviews about being short on resin, I made adjustments. I did not use a roller. I spread resin on aluminum foil for soaking kellar mat, and used a brush to tap and spread. Made full use of all resin with minimal waste and turned out great. Used Krylon paint for plastic after full cure. I am totally happy with results. Directions didn't mention a difference in matting top/bottom, found a youtube reference. Not sure how critcal that is other then texture or wear?
