How to Make Carbon Fiber Quarter Panels for 240z (Ep #7) (4K)

276 957 Näkymät

Ok so we lay the first layer of carbon on the Datsun rear quarter panel, cleaned up the rust on the doors and we bond one of the carbon skins too the door as well. The goal is to have the quarters and roof bonded together next to show unity between the two.
If you guys don't know already this vehicle is solely going to be a track car and we are currently preparing for the GTA New Jersey Motorsports Global Time Attack. So if you go we will most likely see us there in June.
Some other great news is we finally surpassed the 1k mark with subscribers and this couldn't be done with out you guys and just was to give a huge thanks it means a lot!!!
In this video I also test out my new sigma 16mm 1.4 lens paired with my Sony a6300. Great lens and for any of my camera guys who are watching its a must buy I love it lol.
Ok enough talking from me enjoy the video and we will be back soon with more updates.

  • Am I missing something here or is this dude really creating a carbon “skin” on top of a steel quarter panel. Should have just wrapped it

  • question I am considering attempting to make carbon door cards from a 89 MK3 supra. The old panels were made from like a card board composite. Does the origonal viny need to be ripped off to make the fiberglass mold? I can not find much info on it. I figured they would need to be because the vinyl will leave a texture in the mold right?

  • Time: 10:38 (I'm so excited, I watch Tim there and I want to do this for such as very-very long-time. My car has been in the garage on stands for a year, making my quarter Panel form on top of the real panel. The form I am making is with a form board 1/8 thickness, which will be 1-1/2'' outer from the real panel. I already purchased my carbon fiber, from what I see here is a thickness of 4-layers, so 3-layers can be a cheaper price range, whereas then my final top finishing layer I can choose, where it will cost more.

  • Hey man I subbed to your channel and I hit the Bell it's what I call "The FIstream Trifecta" and I am going to share it with a buddy & we do car's together. We just got burned by guy in Newark DE on a Datsun Roadster! He wants to go to the DIY carbon fiber route and trying to get the 411 from people who are actually doing and not just riding the couch! I looked up your address on Google Street View and any of Sisson Street near the Harbor ain't gonna have a John Deere backhoe and a billboard post! I got on the Map and I'm clocking you at 28th and Sisson Street by the long reptile mural on the bridge! I'd been looking at the block wall in the part of the shop most of the work was being done and I knew that I knew that place! I've worked at Baltimore Auto Body back in the day! The old owner had a POS basket case 356 by that post! The DC Sniper & Boy Robin were in the parking lot of the double D across the street and BCPD didn't run tag, just moved 'em along until a trucker at a prayer meeting in Frederick was not sitting on his hands, but he didn't get none of the reward 💰! Do you still have anchor pots in floor? We used a power tower to great effect before I-CAR standards were a thing or even the Internet to let you know when it was! I'd used my first plasma cutter there! Putting Mobtown on the map for something good! So is Tim Hicks the customer & the fabricator? Can an old skool guy drop in with coffee?

What type of UV resin is he using?

    • It isn't structural. They still have the heavy stock panels under the carbon. They just want it to look light I guess. A fake carbon vinyl wrap would be lighter than what they are doing.

    • @Strictly Come Driving Plus it's a waste of money. Idk why but I only see Americans wasting their money doing hack job carbon like this. Anywhere that has any proper racing heritage knows how to lay carbon

      gin forkgin fork3 kuukautta sitten
    • It's not. The quality is shit. Laying carbon fiber without an autoclave and/or without proper resin infusion using vacuum is a waste of time. The end result looks crap, the quality of the carbon fiber is atrocious, and the fact that he laid the carbon directly over the existing panel means the carbon fiber part is actually bigger than the original. Cutting corners just to make something look cool is stupid.

  • Just curious as to why you let the first layer of resin tack before adding the carbon rather than doing "resin - carbon - resin" all at once like with fiberglass?

    Jayden TarnowskiJayden TarnowskiVuosi sitten
    • @TrueMenImproveDaily with dry cloth putting carbon over a tacky surface will only lead to weave distortions (you can see them clearly in other videos) and this is usually done after the suface coat has lost its tack and keyed so the carbon can be laid and moved to try and remover or minimise distortion then resin is put over the top as this is a wrap/skin and not a carbon part. They should have pigmented the surface layer black too and the PVA coating is a total waste of time unless they ARE making an actual mould.. Its wrong in so many ways,..

      Richard VanagsRichard VanagsVuosi sitten
    • Jayden Tarnowski allowing the resin to get to a tacky state allows him to lay the carbon EXACTLY where he wants it so the weave lays in the way he wants it. Doing wet resin - carbon - wet resin on a vertical panel would allow the weight of the carbon to pull the weave down and mess up the straight rows

  • So guys, I did watch this 3-times but how many layers total? And how layers of Resin including your very first coat? I haven't seen yet a reply from use, to my question short time back yet. I mentioned a have a Dodge Challenger 2012 and wished to get to guys insight who did all the work. I would like to show him my car pics. I could email him or use the pics? Plan on not removing the quarter panel as use didn't either I noticed. After all, layers have been applied, I'd tape off as use did a perimeter and then cut inside what would be kept off. [I don't have a paint booth, so use have one over me there.] My intentions are the finished product look would be carbon Matt look as I recall later in your video so parts were glossy and other as door handles were glossy but others weren't just flat appearance. Question, this carbon fiber would hold up if it wasn't painted yes? I'll watch for your reply, thanks for your time. Great job on this car, I've seen all the videos.

  • Carbon skinning looks good but its a little gimmicky in my opinion. Make gel coat molds of the panels and make real carbon parts. Takes forever and is expensive but it actually reduces weight and improves stiffness. Your title should be changed to laying carbon fiber on steel body panels. Just saying. Cool build though.

    • @Lon Don Theyre laying it on the outside, removing the molded carbon fiber, then cutting all but the very edges of the existing metal panel out. Then they epoxy the carbon fiber panel to the remaining edge of that cut metal. So yes, the CF panel is a millimeter or two bigger than the original.

  • WEAR A RESPIRATOR!!!! The dust coming off carbon fiber is one of the most carcinogenic things you can inhale, it also of course can tear up your lungs like little nano-razor blades. I work sanding and working with carbon fiber on a weekly if not daily basis and use a full tyvek suit and respirator, they cost very little and can really protect your health and btw love the vid but PROTECT YOURSELF!

    TheStudioTheStudio2 vuotta sitten
    • Not true according to U.S. National Institute of Health (NIH). Now, the epoxy resins used are a different story; unless they are allowed to fully set (dry or become non-reactive) before sanding, epoxy resin dust can do serious damage to the lungs. Take the exact same precautions you would take when working with fiberglass and you will be fine. Carbon fiber dust is not toxic or any more dangerous than common household dust, but you do have to respect the epoxy resin.

Curious what clear you intend on sealing it up. ive done a few wet layup, vacuum bagged carbon hoods and trunks over the years and have had mixed results depending on the clear. Make sure you seal the underside with a coat as well engine temps seem to cause aditional off gassing with Westsystems epoxy. helps to heat up the part and make sure its fully cured before you clear it.
