I never did use those clear air bladders in pics above. I used latex tubes from piercanusa.com. My epoxy & carbon supplies come from compositeenvisions.com of Minnesota. Great place, quality stuff.

this is inch & 1/2 X inch & 1/2 carbon fiber square tube. This tube is 6 feet long. Holding in my left hand, took pic with iPhone in right hand. Build with this, its the only way.

latex tube comes out easy. It has mclube and pva on it. The tubes inside are satin smooth and shiny.

Latex tube is also hooked up to vaccum when l pull it .

Very rewarding for all the learning curve l went thru to learn this method of making carbon fiber square tubes.
