    Question: Just received Ferrari fender..

    And I want to create a mold from it. What is the easiest way to replicate this fender? I don't have alot of fiberglass experience, but a friend is will be in town to help me. He does professional car audio with fiberglass enclosures and all that good stuff. any suggestions?

    MAKE YOUR FLANGES FIRST YOU WOULD NEED A HOT GLUE GUN AND SOME CARD BORD OR CONTACT PAPER THE HARD KIND SO YOU CAN MAKE YOUR FLANGE POINTS get some PVA WATER BASE MOLD RELEASE AND SPRAY IT ON IT THEN GEL COAT(LET THE GEL COAT DRY FIRST THEN HAND LAY THE FIBERGLASS ON AND ROLL IT SO THERE ARE NO AIR BOBBLES IN IT LET CURE THEN PULL

    flanges are point of seperation so it is a defider to make a mold that is in parts for easy pull
    YOU can make a mold of the part all one part

    you can make a mold in one piece if it doesnt have any reverse angles,if the piece has a reverse angle you have to make it in seperate pieces .the areas where the mold bolts togegther are called parting banks
