Now that is one pampered body, it's gets its own heaters when tucked up at night
how to the mold making go using candle wax on the light covers ?
I started making a frame around the existing hole as the sides were not parallel to each other.
I then used balsa inside the frame to make the plug this is it with a coat of G4 to seal it.
I cant find a pic of the mould but this is the mould with a layer of gel coat.
I then put on a couple of layers of tissue
I then attached the original frame and glassed it in. This is the first Louver fresh out of the mould.
After a bit of trimming fitted to the car, at this point there was still a bit of tweaking to be done.
Thanks for sharing Dirk, looking good
So do you always put tissue down as your first layer on the gel coat? Is this to make it easier to confirm to tighter angles and ensure no air voids before laying the thicker glass fibre. I had thought about trying this but wasn't sure doing it on my newly made mold was the best time to experiment. but having said that I do have some narrow deep recesses that may benefit from this approach if it works?
Coming along very nicely Dirk.
Like the work you do.
I am also going the route of replacing the paint on the Eureka with a new topcoat. I will be taking it right back to the original yellow gel coat before applying Black top coat. I know I'll be facing a lot of sanding & polishing, but hope to achieve a nice shiny and straight finish.
