  • It is ali flashing. Works a treat. Very easy to shape and form and hot glue has been burning the ends off my fingers for the past few weeks now.

    Pretty much all molded now and sitting to fully kick to not warp and then pull the bucks out and start pulling a couple sets for Wayne and I....

    Cheers

    • All the moulds have ben m,\made and had time to set and original pats pulled out and returned to their owner today.

      We are now on to making the first interior from the moulds to see how it goes. First two biggest parts are in gel coat as of the end of working today. Back at it tomorrow if Wayne doesn't get snowed in tonight.....

      Cheers

        • First parts pulled and ready for trimming and cleanup. A few areas of alligatoring so Wayne and i are not sure how it is showing up as we are doing the same process on every piece as well as the same process on his parts and the others are turning out amazing.... Maybe not allowing the gel coat to properly kick?? No issues at all though as these are covered so I am just going to clean up the areas and fill with some fibre reinforced paste and carry on. I am VERY happy with how the parts have turned out. Now I just need to get the Countach in to the garage so I can put these in to see how they all fit.....

          Cheers

            • Hey Don
              I have a box on the go of foam bits for you and Wayne .
              Wow jumped right back into the fire I see !!! that's great the bumper recreation is awesome , i discovered a new trick with that foam also , the grey fiber paper side is strong enough to run on the router bit , gently of course . but this is great so you don't have to make a thin wooden pattern to router parts .

              These are for the roof , they will be rails that go under roof scoop for attaching it . they have a radius on the top to fiberglass over easier .

              • Moulds on their way down to the US this week so K9COP and I can get some more built for sale for those that are interested. I am back out of fiberglassing for a bit again....

                Back to finishing the 308 for this summer driving.
