– Taking your question from the other thread…
“How hard can it be for a first timer?”
Answer - Have you read my build thread?
Jokes aside, the difficultly of building bodywork directly, rather than via a mould, is panel depth.
What Tribute do is get the body work exactly the way they want it and then take the mould.
What you are trying to do is get the final bodywork after
you have laid on the fibreglass/carbon fibre.
So, you will be making a mould that will actually be ‘smaller’ than the final shape required.
(By the depth of your fibreglass/carbon fibre.)
Fibreglass will not stick to brown parcel tape, or clingfilm, but both will leave an impression on the underside.
(Which no one will see in your case.)
As for the mould itself, I have used a variety of things to shape what I was trying to make…
A beer can and plastic drinks bottle.
Bits of a yoga mat.
I even used the corner mesh used by plasterers.
(No need for tape, as the fibre glass didn’t stick to the metal.)
Hope that helps and good luck!
