Default How much Flox/Epoxy for 12iS

Having no experience with fiberglass/epoxy work... I am to the point of installing the nav lights at the wing tips of my 12iS build. This calls for a small amount of flox/epoxy mix. I know there will be further use of epoxy product later on in the build. Anyone have an estimate of how much epoxy is recommended to purchase in order to have enough to complete the entire build.

One quart of West Systems with 206 hardener, small 410 micro filler and small bag of flox will get you through. I did a 7 with these quantities and even filled in the stab and elevator caps.

Look for a local Marine Supply. If not, Aircraft Spruce. Personally, I would rather have more on hand. It doesn't cost much more.

I like CSTsales.com. They not only have West Systems but lots of choices for glass and carbon.
