I put fiberglass tows(long unidirectional fibers) along sharp corners and joggles.Cabosil is your friend in corners.
It's not cost effective. If you want to pay I can make it happen though. Biggest issue with vacuum bags is the re-tooling required. Pretty much all the molds in the off road industry would not survive the oven. Vacuum bagging is happening in the off road industry, but it's for carbon fiber parts.Does anyone in the offroad fiberglass industry use epoxy or vinylester resin? Or do they just shotgun straight up polyester on the rocks with a styrene chaser?
As long as the molds don’t have ridiculously complex backup structures, they could be envelope bagged and room temp or heat-tent cured at 140-160F.Biggest issue with vacuum bags is the re-tooling required. Pretty much all the molds in the off road industry would not survive the oven.
Seriously, I dig it. My redneck beer can with resin splooge job(that deservedly requires some criticism) has prompted some great knowledge sharing. I had no idea Turdblo was so into fiberglass. I should have figured that though... I mean the high desert people are known for huffing chemicals. hahaAll I do is talk shit, it's kind of like tough love. Besides, how else would we get a great tech thread going?
I am guessing a lot of dudes are like “what the fuck is CF???We need to give Turboyotasome more shit. Guy makes CF parts for a living and none of it makes it on to his trucks. I choose my place of work by how much cool shit I can make for myself.
