We'll then stick them together to form the base body of the car to then apply the fibreglass to.
However as we're used to cnc work with metals etc we're not too hot on foam or other lightweight products. We're looking for advice from anyone who knows what foam based product would work best (and from a sensible affordability context) for cnc machines to develop the body shape.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts and advice.
Theres a great book called build your own supercar by Brian Thompson (on ebay) In it he covers lots of this stuff HTH
