The sweet smell of resin

 

Got some of the fibre glassing jobs done.

 

Starting with a layer of gel coat on the flares

Layers of glass over the top

Allow a few days to harden, and the flare mold is complete.

Same for the bumper.  A final sand to smooth it down, then polish with mould release wax, layers of PVA release agent

Then a liberal application of gel coat.

Then layers and layers of glass

Again, after a few days of drying time we have a mould!  Just need to get the plasticine cleaned off from the around the number plate area and she’s done!
