    Giardino international on Logan ave has done two of my immobilizer installs. Dropped car off morning off and was finished on time both times. Would recommend.

      Would highly recommend Cargo East Marine for fiberglass supplies. They've got a decent selection of quality products.

      If you're looking for West Systems stuff for any fiberglass projects, Lee Valley has a very limited selection, and most has to be ordered. Cargo East stocks considerably more and is more knowledgeable about it.

      Don't waste your time with the $30 gallon of fiberglass and hardener from Canadian Tire/Part Source. Use quality stuff, you'll thank yourself in the long run. Actually that goes for most body shop supplies,  example, the body filler you'll buy from Rondex or a proper body shop supply place will be much more user friendly and higher quality than the junk you'll get at Canadian Tire/Part Source.

      Home Depo / Rona have limited acrylic selection, just sheets, up to 1/4" thick last time I looked. Johnson Plastics or even Acryl Design had quite a bit more.

          Avoid the Bondo branded stuff at all costs. It's owned by 3M but awful. Even if you're just experimenting with using filler and don't want to invest a lot. It's still not worth it. It's like trying to spread bubble gum.

            Doesn't help that it sits on the shelf for 10 years before some sap in a pinch buys it, all dried out. Been there, never again.

              The west systems stuff lasts forever. I had an open half used gallon and hardener that sat in the garage for 5ish years. Still good!!

                  This is what we use at my shop. Good shiz spreads nice and sands nice too which is a bonus.

                    It's our cheap filler. But works well.

                      Westrock on Logan for Batteries. I had a good experience

                      Screw Robertson as a wholesaler, don't even waste your time. Go to Choice instead. Every time I go to Robertson I've stood and waited at the counter for 5-10 before anyone even looks at you, even though they're about 10' away. They've also screwed up shipments to the point where the owner of the company i was working for told us not to use them.

                      There's also Westco, Nedco, and Westburne. Westco and Nedco might not help you though since they're wholesale only but you never know, just play dumb.
