    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.

    I totally dig the fact that hes super honest about going to youtube for tutorials. I do the same everytime I have questions about how to do something mechanically. I call it KOgos university. And he drops a plug to the channels. Bad ass 🤘🤘🇺🇸🇺🇸

    Yeah.... better to use your original part to make a mold, then lay your CF on the inside.

    To have the confidence to even attempt this is pretty extraordinary... back in the 90s I cut cars in half my dad would go buy Porsches and high-end European cars and that's what I learned on but it took a long time.... gotta give you props though most people would have just had somebody else do it....

    Don't bother clear coating it, just paint it the colour of the car.

    Reading comments is kind of an art form. There are those who actually know something. There are those who think they do because they watched a video. And then there are trolls, posting as soon as the vid drops hoping to get the likes and the 'top comment' spot. I'm sure Chris knows who's who too.

    the gel is just for seperaton then the carbon fiber is like fiberglass close to same fiberglass cloth is a mat just like fiber carbon easy to use but carbon much stronger then do bottom and mold together good thing is carbon strong and you can use small pieces to put them together watch he did a better like1963;splits window the name is tip of my tongue he's short tattoos and has a son Ryan I think I'll think of it let you no I'm getting older to many fumes memory gone

    Clear example of to much money and no idea...learn to make a simple interior panel or trim piece. Nope tries to make a full hurrican Carbon body even professional shops would struggle with. Watch this channel for the simple reason of how not to build cars.

    I would have made a wood and clay boundary, hot my PVA mold release then laid my carbon fiber mat. I would then stick it into my vacumm bag and pull a vacum works so much better. Go to RCgroups and view the vacum bagging parts how to!

    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:

    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.

    Fibreglass mold + Carbon vacuum Infusion. That is the way to go for all the parts on your car.

    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.

    daqqer2k4 개월 전

    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.
