    Well I'm not sure about all the safety gear I just use onetime use gloves, safety glasses and sometimes a respirator. A good respirator cost something around 40-50 quid. And I don't think you have to worry about fibers working its way through your skin, yes you can get a few splinter. So yea your a bit overly worried.

    A big thanks to crucial

    Looks friggin' awesome, if there was to be a lovechild between the aforementioned Alien and the most recent Batmobile, this may well be a scaled down version of it. And love them Ballistix.

    Hi, well currently I'm in the US, LA/LV. On a sad note I"m not 21 so i can't drink or gamble, not that i would but its nice to have the option:naughty:
    On the bright side I was able to pick up my psyko headphones. I'd like to give a big thanks to PSYKO and an even bigger thanks to Locke who made sure they got to me:thumb::thumb:

    The type of pics I've been making in las vegas

    any update? its been 2 months?

    oh and are you using epoxy or poly resin? Be careful with the resin, letting is cure inside the house can kill you.


    A note on mold making. Get on carbonmods.com and buy their mold making kit. Then make your part you want to make out of foam, paint it, then pull a female mold off of it using their kit. The tooling gel coat in their kit is easy to work with, easy to fix imperfections, and will give you great looking finish without a lot of work. Not to mention it creats a LOT less work having to repatir your mold for a second part and all your parts will be exactly the same. As will any other part you pull from it in the tuture.

    Thanks for the advice, I'm using epoxy.

    The update part: I as you may know I recently graduated and because of that I fulfilled the requirements at the school I graduated at. I can do a year college prep at the same school to basically get a better graduation (think of it as a upgrade). At the moment I am swamped with school and other stuff like looking for a job for when I'm done. I want to bring out a update next week and hopefully be done by December or sooner so keep your fingers crossed.
