Re: Material: Textured Shelf liner for hatch lips

: Yes it is just the stuff from the hardware store, I got it from the
: local Ace Hardware. It is used as a release agent just like you
: would use packing tape to keep the hatch lip from becoming
: permenently glued in place during layup. The epoxy fills the
: texture, and when you remove the liner just like removing the
: packing tape, it leaves this texture.

OOOOOHHHHHHH.... Okay, sorry, now I get it. That's great! I may try that trick.
