Is there a different process for doing this if you are building the bow and not converting a one piece?

Is the riser of a recurve ok for a conversion like this?

This is awesome and I want to try it. I've worked with fiberglass a little before, but I know very little about the materials and their qualities.
I know I can get this cloth:

and this resin:

at the local Napa Auto Parts store. I don't know if the resin is polyester, but if that is better, they may be able to get something like that also.
Would these materials work OK or do I need to look somewhere else?
Thanks,
