I'm planning on making a engine induction system airbox from glass weave and want to know what resin to use for it for it to be able to withstand the heat from under the bonnet. it is on the cold side of the engine so is away from the exhaust. i do plan on painting the outside with heat resistant paint which should insulate it a bit from heat from under the bonnet. its hard to say at what temp it will be but on my alloy one i can hold it but it gets hot but not hot enough not to be able to grab it firmly.
i was thinking of west system epoxy resin, will that be ok most likely?
what is commonly used for this type of application
