They bash your neck if you fall that way.

I race fatbikes in winter. Very fun.

Have you been able to ride your low racer yet or did you decide to abandon it?

Photobucket is down:

Worked much more on the fence for two part mold of the front fender plug. Takes me so long, about 8 hours to finish & fix that fence. Now i will wax the plug 7 times with TR, reset fence and make the first side of the mold which is easy.

I learned alot from this video and buy from these UK people.

————————————————-
Did switch to lauan wood ($7.48 Home Depot) on larger velomobile rear cowling plug to make the plug “fence” instead of using polycarbonate.The youtube above technique and the lauan wood made it easy. Nice to have these two plugs ready to make the split molds/tools from them.

Pop off fence tomorrow night and clean & wax that side ready for a finished 2 part mold.

Finally after months of casual work on 20” full fender well mold i am prepping. Will use these molds to complete my rear components that make my unibody a 4 wheeler (rear wheel wells).

Black epoxy tooling gelcoat and carbon and soric over tooling gel. I always keep learning tips and tricks for plugs and molds.

Before frekote l buffed split mold with wizard compounds and my flex german made hand buffer. Dont be home without it.

LETS NOT FORGET DURATEC PRODUCTS/YOUTUBE , compositeenvisions.com, and rev-chem in Southern California.

U see the yellow can of frekote product.
1) frekote cleaner gallon size
2) frekote sealer 4 coats
3) frekote release 4 coats
4) 7 coats of the great TR mold release wax (ebay) over frekote.



Brevity and misspelling rampant (new eye lens couple weeks ago)

THIS IS A VELOMOBIEL MOLD PARTS BUILD OF CARBON ONGOING!

MY BLADDER SQUARE MOLDS MAKE TUBE WITH PIERCAN INTERNATIONAL, mclube.com & split molds bolted together w/oil-less vaccum to draw out bladder after 24 hours.

Under front seat, other chain wheel in rear wheel well.

New rear seat hardware incredible, from df, call em up and order u some.

Relocated chain wheel from europe, & plastic quest chain tube experimental.

Front seat hardware is copy of older style Quest even though i made. I love the netherlands attitude life and acceptance of me.
