Thanks it did take a few goes to get write.but i realized that the finish is not important when i pulled the foot rest from the mdf mold it removed some of the mdf with it didn't look good but many hours of sanding and it looked great.
i do recommend using the vacuum bagging method or even better vacuum infusion
it really helps with awkward mold shapes and removes any excess resin as well as adding strength

lots of good videos on youtube with tips from pros
