good to see you making videos again mate. thanks for sharing
What did you use for the framing?
25mm hot water rubber insulation tubing from Bunnings, cut in half.
All your videos deserve praise and benefit 👏👍👍👏
I love the fact that you still race your cars ... you're a legend, man. Loving your tutorials.
This man is a beast. An innovator that gives inspiration and help to all car customizing enthusiasts.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience. I've been trying to figure out how to make some fiberglass spoiler/wing stands. It's a simple enough shape but i can't figure out how to make them. Given that they are essentially hollow pieces and need to bolt to the wing on one end and the deck lid on the other I'm at a loss. I've spent many hours scouring the internet trying to find something similar i could adapt the technique from but have come up empty. I'd love to see any tips that might help me.
@WJP004 I never thought about using the foam to press the fiberglass into the mold. I've also been worried about the mount bolt holes being along the seem of a split mold. I was thinking of using a piece of aluminium to reinforce the mounting sections. These wing stands won't be used for racing. I'm trying to make parts to fit the look a friend wants for his car. Thank you so much for the reply, it definitely has given me something to try.
I went a different route, shaping a plate out of tin for each side. Then I cut a piece of 25mm electrical conduit in half & put it down the middle. That gave me a die on which to hand lay them in CF. If you want a hollow post you sculpt the shape you want, then make a two piece split flanged mold of each side. Then make the two halves & trim to the flanges leaving them in their molds. Then you bolt the two dies with the 2 layups together & pour in expanding foam to lock the two halves together. Same technique as e making this wing: fistream.info/work/videot/osKKa6SaaZObpnE If you want other ways of making a flange for a split mold you will find that in my playlist of fiberglass tutorials.
You inspired me to work on my car body. Thank you. I made front fiberglass bumper for my Civic ED 4 gen. So sad, you are far far away.
You should get a website and sell items you use on there I bet you could make some good $ off it by just putting a link in your description. You could also sell parts that you’ve made that way.
You make it appear so easy!! I'll be doing my second attempt at my hood this weekend! Keep the tutorials coming!
It's sharing knowledge like this that makes racing possible for us low budget backyarders. Can't thank you enough for all the valuable lessons.
Thanks for the really practical tips
