    Thanks for referring me to your build. Astounding work. I really like the vacuum infusion method, I've just been to busy to try it out. I look forward to seeing more of the build! I love the stealth bomber style look you have going on!

    If you come to Paris, don't hesitate to PM me : I'll be glad to welcome you in my wonder... euh... in my city. And its bars. Yeah. :clap::D
    And for the infusion method, to be honest, I already have all the tools and furnitures in my pocession (vacuum pump, vacum gauge, tube clamps, vacuum hose, vacuum bagging film, peel-ply, resin infusion mesh, etc.) but I haven't start yet because I'm working on MDF molds for my three next projects, and I have to buy flax fiber and, maybe, carbon fiber. :)

    I must say, I am thoroughly impressed. If the rest of the build is anything like what you've done so far, it's going to be extraordinary when finished.

    I love Carbon Fibre :thumb: having come from a car moddin' background back to PC's I always cringe inside when I see pretend carbon fibre, so use of the real stuff is nice to see.

    I've not yet seen anyone on here use the coloured kevlar stuff yet mind :confused:

    I use to have a coloured carbon/kevlar bonnet and boot lid on my track car before a slight accident that meant replacing both for plain CF :eeek: :waah:

    Sounds awesome! Cant wait to see your CF creation when you get to fabricating it

    Thanks:rock:

    Thanks! The molds take alot of time unless the construction of the plug is absolutely spotless.

    Thanks for the compliment!

    Thanks! I thought about colored Carbon Fiber, though, at like $100 a yard or close to it, it was just to expensive. Colored Kevlar can be just as expensive at regular 2x2 twill CF, so it wouldn't make a cheap middle reinforcement layer imho. That is awesome you work with CF. I'm trying to raise awareness of CF to the community here and the different ways to work with it.

    Thanks for the Support!

    Me too:hehe:!! Thanks for the support!

    Thanks bro!! Modders and builders like us should come together that are working on CF and collaborate in the attempt that community with start using CF more in their builds. I hope the tutorial helps in anyway, though, you seemed quite skilled already. :clap:!! The style truly is unique.
