CURING A EXTRA DAY.

Now we have 20” front fenders carbon or glass. Nice plug now to prep for 2 piece mold/tool.




Alot of shiny work to only use one time. Still haf to wet-sand and polish:



Saturday: started the rewarding task a few days of wet sanding. 1000,1200,1800, this is a easy process & enjoyable. Buff with wizard next week and get another bottle of swirl remover. Nerves of a whore in church.

Yes. Fg-innegra or cf-innegra. Mold ready in couple weeks or close. Conquered the sand buff tech of duratec sunshield & very happy. They hang below axles.

Sorry this gets boring but plugs and the hardest longest parts to finish in the industry. Large companies pay 125$ per sq foot to have them made & ready to polish.

i’ve learned that I don’t hate making plugs and a bunch of new techniques. Some of the next big plugs will be foam covered in duratec products. Type in fiberglast.com. & watch their YouTube channel.

Started the split mold of fear cowling . Zoom in u see the 4 wheeler hardware from europe on my shop vehicle.



Closer: 3 part mold



Also will use this split mold below to make rear wheel wells for my 4 wheeler velomobiel unibody.



Brevity & misspellings rampant. (New lens in left eye/blurr)

New plug to pull another mold.

This will make a 3 window carbon frame to install into the carbon canopy.

Out side is together now @ seams with bondo.

Will flip tomorrow and glass inside for strength.

This plug will be grey duratec and wet sanded hopefully in week or so.

Two different styles of windows in my carbon canopy up front.



Closer to pulling a mold from this plug too: sand and sand. Then polish.



Sprayed this first coat out in driveway today, now some fine tuning wet-sanding and then buff the polyester:
