  • I think Im going to try this technique to flare my front bumper to cover the front of the tires! Could you just bond it to the car? or will that not hold?

  • Love this style of video. As a former plug and mold (non automotive) builder seeing how other guys do it I always pick up something new.

  • Great stuff, per usual! Question, since you coated these in the epoxy that is more used for table tops would they still have the same release characteristics if you decided to make a mold of them in the future to reproduce them? Not saying you will I have my own project going on and am asking more about that. Thanks!

    • pstrybel I mean pretty much any surface can be prepped to be released. So yeah

  • can i lay carbon over factory pannel and pop it off. doing both sides then mating it ? like trunk or hood? or even dash?

    • Daniel Rotolante technically yes but that’s not how I’d do parts like that. I’d make a mold for those.

  • Around the 25 min mark where you finished sanding and applied the table top epoxy. I thought you can’t sand carbon fiber or it frays. I have a painted carbon fiber part I would love to go back to a bare carbon look. Can I just sand down to the carbon and then re clear it?

  • For lighter fairing you can use WEST 407 low density with epoxy for strong light fairing. Because of the dark color you can't use the 410 it's actually lighter. Here's a link Much stronger and lighter than bondo.

  • Hey AJ which kind of foam did you use for your mock ups. it looks like the insulation foam you can get at home depot.

    • Samuel Wu yup

      AJ Hartman AeroAJ Hartman Aero2 kuukautta sitten
  • I have so many ideas now!

    James WoodJames Wood2 kuukautta sitten
  • What type of foam is that - looks like insulation board? I guess it doesn't need to be epoxy resin compatible since the packing tape protects the foam?

  • Can you comment or do a video on if there are differences in the epoxy you use in this process vs. full-on bagging? Maybe also talking about the UV resistance too?

  • Why didn't you use fairing compound? It's much lighter and easier to sand. Doesn't seem like you'd want heavy ass flares on your car, nor do they need any extra "strength" being carbon.

  • i love this stuff! You are awesome, AJ! doesn’t need to be perfect, because race car. honestly, i see no real reason for carbon fiber otherwise. keep up the great work.

  • loved this DIY skinning tutorial.

  • this is the simplest and looks like the fastest fender flares i is seen around FIstream, great job and love that new edge mustang get some love, not many new edge track cars in FIstream. Getting some inspiration to do my own carbon fiber DIY

  • Awesome thanks for the great tips! Got any videos coming up on the lost foam technique ?

    Esteban EchandiEsteban Echandi2 kuukautta sitten
    • Esteban Echandi no. I prefer to tape over any plugs. Much cleaner. I’m sure there’s a part where that technique would be better tho.

  • This is so much easier than you'd think. Thanks for putting this together. Ive been weighing the options of doing my own or buying a kit. This definitely makes me lean towards a DIY.

  • Awesome job. What thickness of carbon do you use for the flares?
