So I got the carbon in today:
i even got started on the body today. first thing first, prep the mold with release wax. very important!
first fabric on was the kevlar. this is the only place kevlar will be used. I was reluctant to do this as i'll need to machine the SFT oring groove, and machine kevlar SUCKSSS. small amounts of spray adhesive were used to hold all the layers down.
after 5 layers of carbon:
Getting ready to infuse. The green material is an elastic plastic that hold the vacuum and pulls all the layers together while the resin is infusing.
here's my infusion set-up. the plastic tube on the right hand side goes into a pot of resin, the vacuum pump then creates a pressure differential that pulls the resin into every little crevice.
Here we are about 5 min into the infusion. the dark line near the bottom is the resin being infused.
About 30 min into the infusion:
that's all I got so far. resin should be cured enough to pull out of the bagging in a few hours.
