Is there something wrong with the US composites stuff? Now Im worried for my project...
I’ve been using it on my build and it seems good quality. It’s about the only one out there that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Seems like a lot of people use it in builds on this site. It takes a while to dry but that’s in a ~65 degree basement. The working time is great but it isn’t really solid for 12-18 hrs. It needs about a day and a half or more to sand or it’ll gum up the paper in my experience. This is the 3:1 medium set.

Well I think my first attempt at bagging was somewhat of a success. Came out a little thinner than I wanted but I will work nice as the start of my new hood. With the cold weather it took a bit longer to cure than I thought (ADD was kicking in bad yesterday) but after over night next to the fire of pulled off nicely. And so smooth and shiny , I am going to like this. So being my first attempt I only used 4 layers of cloth (two of 10oz e-glass and two biaxial ). For my tray I will be doing the same way but will be adding a few layers of 1708 to build it up a bit more. 20190101_085900.jpg

Haven't really been doing a lot. I got the hood to the shape I think I want, just need to sand it down then work on the inside. Also added a layer of 1708 to the inside of my chop job from last year. Now I can cut in the scupper and exhaust and button up the under tray plumbing so I can 5200 them. The March freeride is right around the corner, fingers crossed that it will be done. 20190109_193652.jpg 20190109_193646.jpg

. Got any more pics of cutting it up?

Didn't take to many of it coming apart. Just cut out the inner liner and that's basically it. Right now it's just the flat sheet off glass that I tried bagging with strips of 1708 around the edges. And I think it might even be tall enough to add some 1" ridged isolation to the underside and then glass over that as well. 20190110_174258.jpg
