I used the green craft foam from Micheals... Really easy to shape with 36 grit wheels. I finish sanded with 150 after the rough cuts. I am going to use fleece for the base layer of glass and the weave to finish it off. Don't know yet if the foam will react to the resin. I have some scraps to test on. If it does I'll probably paint it with latex paint then glass it. I glued the blocks together with this...

Are you powdercoating the frame or painting it? If you're going to paint it, I'd put a little glazing putty in the really rough spots or bondo, if bondo's your thing. Makes the frame look smoother when painted.

I will be painting it and I will try putting some bondo in the nasty parts

Good choice. I've always had better luck using automotive mixed paint than having it powdercoated.
