Default Cheapest fiberglass resin?

Hey, I'm looking to buy a bulk amount of fiberglass resin. Would like to buy 10 gallons. I don't want poor-quality resin, but want to find the best deal I can, since I'm buying so much. Do you guys have a link to buy good-quality resin in bulk? I've done fiberglass before, but in a much smaller quantity.

Box is going to be a wall about 6 cubes gross and will also be doing my roof, back wall, and floor. Possibly custom fiberglass dash too, so I wanted a bit extra.

This is the best bulk deal I saw for 5 gallons:
Fiberglass Resin Polyester Lamanating 5 Gal Mekp Hardener | eBay

If you guys have any cheaper links, that would be awesome! Thanks!

Can you tell me the differences you notice with different resins?

Very interested in an answer to this as well. I did my doors, wheel wells and box with the bondo resin from lowes. Never used anything else.

Advice I can give ya on your first set of doors that I learned.
1. Don't use fleece! Get a thin t shirt type material that stretches well.

2. Glass from the backside to reduce the bondo work for making it smooth.

3. Plan on everyone kicking your bottom woofers, I mean everyone! I tell people how much I hate it and they still kick it, pretty damn annoying. So make a grill and have extra glass on the bottoms.

The bondo resin (and others that are not labeled as layup) have a small amount of wax that separates out to the surface when curing. This is helpful in having a non-tacky surface when you're done with the piece, but should be sanded off if you're using it in multiple layers with curing between the layers. I typically just lay down all the layers at once and don't worry about it.

Edit: Oh, and the bondo resin is probably the thickest stuff you can get. Not really a problem most of the time, but it can make proper wet-out difficult with thicker materials.
