  • Hello. very interesting to see your blog. there is a lot to learn for me who has never cast any of the carbon fiber dishes -the first layer of carbon fiber and cut the edges fine. Is it not possible to re-lay the subject over the armor to still keep the correct shape of the web made of carbon fiber? 2) if I then would build a scoop on the new hood, it is then smarter to build the armor first, and after full drought, and then drill holes for the scoop to glue it on from the inside. what do you think is wise thank you in advance 👁️👁️

  • If you want some very durable clear coat checkout aviation grade high solids clear, all the major paint manufacturers offer it for the most part but my favorites are PPG’s aviation clear and Du Ponts aviation high solids. I can’t remember their technical branding at the moment but it’s worth looking into. Some of it is incredibly hard to sand though, drys like concrete lol but it’s Skydrol resistant which is impressive.

  • Next time you use resin, cut in the corners and deep spots, then roll the rest on, or else you get those leveling issues like you had. Also, you want to uv cure resin, whenever possible, for at least 48 hours. The way you let it cure, is a minimum of 1 week cure time.

  • Chelsea!!!!!! PLEASE get just one person that knows what they are doing when it comes to mold making to help your boy PLEASE!!!! This is killing me 😳 1) Get a Tyvek paper suit and gloves. 2) Use more coats of wax. Forget PVA. Your finish will be 100% better. YOU DONT NEED PVA. All the imperfections you can see in the surface, even after you just spray the PVA will be in your mold surface. Use 3 cloths, wax on, wax off and then a clean polish cloth. We use to use 10 coats of wax in our difficult edged molds. 3) Get some 3” wide thin sheet metal strips and duct tape/silicone to the door edge to form a good wide flat lip to vac off of. Wax edge fully. 4) Use a fluffy 3-4” inch wide “nook and cranny” roller to apply the resin onto the cloth, (not a paint brush) Much faster. Gives you more time to work on the important things before it goes off. 5) Use a Proper solid steel mini roller to roll out your cloth after you put on the resin. It pushes out the air and forms the cloth into the edges. 6) Reinforce your mold with Balsa Core or Foam Core! To help it keep the correct shape. When Chris is laying back in the hotel room gushing about how great it was to meet Mickey Mouse face to face, would be a good time to suggest he gets someone to help him with this phase of the build. Have a great time in Disney Land guys, Cheers 🍻🍷😃

  • Just a basic method -- 1. 3-4 coats of wax... 2. 2-3 coats of pva, and a regular paint sprayer is definitely not recommended... 3. use something like plastic sheets, corrugated sign board for example, and using hot glue over masking tape so the glue doesn't remain on the actual part you are duplicating, cut and glue them on the underside edges all the way around, using a release tape to cover all the seams... 4. use a putty type wax around the edge, all the way around the piece... 5. gelcoat prior to resin... 6. resin and fiberglass and get your first half of a mold... 7. do not remove the part from the mold when the resin is cured, but instead leave it in place to create the underside mold in similar manner after removing the plastic edging ..... Highly recommend the following video series for better info... Part 1 of 3 of a company in the UK that provides most all you need to make carbon or glass parts, but the 3 videos go through a very simple mold and part making process:

    texaswildcat2000texaswildcat2000Vuosi sitten
  • ucan still use this method, make the same 1 layer hood, keep it on the original part, spray pve on top of carbon and then put some construction foam on top of it to keep shape, when you flip it the shape is still there and you can take the metal hood out and work inside. we did that with other parts and seemed to work.

  • When we made the resin to impreg the carbon for Aston martin/Ferrari body parts, we use to mix the resin in a vacuumed mixer otherwise you would get little air bubbles the size of pin holes. Unless spraying over the Carbon, I'm not sure how you would get rid of the little pin sized void.

  • Ok you made a mold not a part. That's what you get when you coat over another part. Next you can actually make a part from your mold. I would use fiberglass instead of carbon fiber to make a mold it would be a whole lot cheaper.

  • If you want to do it unproffessionally and easy and its a one time thing then just do the same process. BUT make a mold first, make the edges stronger, then add wooden blocks on the outside of the form to support it to maintain the same shape and curves nad angles. Then take it off and turn it around. And then make the right piece and it will come out nice and shiny.

  • carbon fiber side view mirrors, they're smaller, cheaper to make, but probably much more difficult, it'll allow you to fail and learn more for less carbon wasted

    WattsWattsVuosi sitten
  • You should try usng your panels as masters to make Fiberglass female molds and then make nice solid panels with these. I would recommend using an infusion process where you suck resin through your part and out from the other side and add a nomex core. It will be much lighter than if you lay resin on top of carbon fibre (which isnt the right way to make carbon fibre parts) and make your panels very strong.

  • Omg... So much things wrong in this video... apply the resin on the hood with a paint roller, you will save ALOT of time, you don't need to apply so much tho. If your mold (your part in your case) is in an angle that could induct the fiber to fall or move, yes you should wait for the resin to be tacky, but if it's flat like your hood, you can apply the fiber right after. The only reason to wait it to be tacky is to help keeping the fiber steady so it don't fall on the floor. Also, NEVER EVER use a squeegee to remove bubbles and lay the fiber down, that's what cause all this imperfections, just use the roller. You should also use a smaller roller than the one you have. I work in composites since 4years, we are making flight simulators covers, so I know what I'm talking about.

  • i think you need to make a mould off the original and make the real piece in that mould that should make the dimentions exactly the same as the part you took it off , you can make the mould from cleaper glassmat put a colour celcoat inside the mould so you get a supper smooth surface and to make any misstakes made in the mould visible so you can fix them and not copy them on every part you take out of that mould allso make a plywood frame to go over the top of the mould and glass that intoo the mould while its still on the part , this prevents it from twisting or bowing and kindah makes it lay flat on the worksurface with is nice as you dont have to chase running resin take a look at the youtube channel from @UC2eM7ZuCPfXTAgbKOpuIaIg he has done a lot of poliester work and pulling poliester moulds from parts , he makes it look verry eazy

  • *Easy Composites Ltd*... was a HUGE help when I was working on a similar project. They're methods allow you to make a true copy of the part too, rather than just some different panel layed on top of the original. They also do a great job at showing how to replicate the interior side of the hood panel. HIGHLY recommend checking them out, especially since you plan on doing a bunch more panels. Not to be a jerk, but I would highly recommend NOT reaching back out to the "Street Banditos" if these are the methods they use. Best of lucky!

  • First love the channel. I have been building aircraft parts for over 30 years from carbon fiber, fiberglass and airamid and the first thing to do is build a mold using tooling cloth and tooling resin. This will give you an ultra smooth surface to lay you cloth on. Then Learn about the warp directions of the cloth and how to clock them for strength. Then learn to use tooling wax to allow for thickness. Also fabricate a female mold and learn vacuum bagging technech that allow for getting any air bubbles out and so you will have a smooth surface with little to no sanding. The real expensive way is like the way the factory does and that is use prepreg materials.

  • Could you do a single layer of Carbon fiber, spray that plastic, water soluble, spray on it then a few layers of fiberglass. Pull the whole thing off the hood and then add more layers of fiberglass. I've never done work with either, just curious.

  • Carbon fiber works better stronger as a compasit with glass fiber. The panels will be stiffer and less brittle for impact damaged. Use 4 oz flat weve s glass between carbon layers with s cloth on the surface. Top layer of glass will stop delamination from sun heating the surface on hot days. Lamington by hand is fine for what your doing but you will definitely need to work from a mold also laminate stiffening ribs.
