    I've worked a very little with fiberglassing for car audio work - It looked very easy in photos but having tried it myself, I just gotta respect the skills of someone who knows what they are doing...

    Sorry, I'm failing to see what's wrong here? Is it the flaking part in the bottom left? Looks beautiful.


    Yes. You suck out all the air and end up getting a stronger composite (no bubbles + more penetration).

    The flaking stuff is the liquid foil, thats supposed to be like that, but i had a lot of air and other stuff in the laminate, but i decided to use it anyway, im gonna laminate inside the forms i got now.

    I guess that kinda answers my question: Are you going to use both of these to make the carbon layer?
