WHAT DO YOU NEED TO PREPARE BEFORE BUILDING
Due to new shipping legislation, a special permit is needed to transport solution-based material.
For this reason, please purchase epoxy from your local store.
Depending on the instructions on the box, the mix for each epoxy will differ.
1. Be sure to read the instructions on the epoxy packaging to make sure you mix it properly.
2. Bamboobee recommends you use the West system.
