It took about four hours for three people to prep and encase me in about 90 rolls of fiberglass. This FBC was done by the team at Serious Bondage in SF. Filador50 has put me in several FBCs and working alone, it takes him about 7 hours to fully seal me in.

They finished up around 4:00 PM and started cutting me out the next day around 6:00 PM, so about 26 hours plus 4 hours putting me in and another 2 hours to cut me out. If I hadn't had to catch a flight home the next morning, I could have gone another couple days. I've spent up to 3 days in a Filador50 applied FBC.

It was an extremely comfortable FBC! Very tight and exceptionally rigid. For most of the 26 hours, they had me suspended and rotatinng slowly from a ceiling jig. With my eyes sealed up, I had no sensation of motion. Very strange yet very comfortable. As noted by Zoro_1969, body and joint position is critical to a successful multiday encasement.
Also, it's an exceptional amount of work for the caretaker to constantly monitor you to be sure you're both physically and mentally OK. Your mind plays some pretty strange games when you are totally incapacitated with absolutely no way to get out. You can just barely feel a tapping or scratching on the outside of the fiberglass shell you're sealed in to from your caretake to let you know somebody's stll there. With your ears plugged, sealed, taped and fiberglassed over, you almost can't hear anything either, further adding to the total isolation. I've also taught myself how to self install a Foley catheter which removes yet another normal sensation. With several days on a liquid diet preceeding the encasement and only given liquids while I'm inside the FBC, your bowels are empty and you only pass fluids with the Foley giving you no sensation of bladder movement.
The one demon I've struggled with is the loss of vision. Filador50 has had to open up the area sealing my eyes a couple times to avoid a total panic attack. As noted above, getting out of this fiberglass prison is no quick ordeal, several hours at the very least so avoiding a total panic attacks is one of your care taker's biggest task.
A lot of you have asked how to get this experience. Filador50 said it best in that you have to find a like-minded individual you can literally place the well-being of your existance in and be willing to recipricate the FBC experience to your care taker. Many things could go wrong and the end result would be your death...
