steps are:

-coat it with a paste wax product by hand, allow to haze over/dry
-spray generously with mold release product, allow to dry
-coat with tooling gel, allow to tack up, but not fully dry
-apply fiberglass matt and resin on top of tooling gel once tacked up, layer to desired thickness.

that's the gist of it. cleaning also includes the area surrounding where you'll be working, and tape/bag off anything you don't want to get any of the gelcoat or fiberglass on thats nearby.
