us-first.info/player/video/i8yAqXupYXpoZHU.html check out that video. they have a perfected a system to create your own carbon fibre panel. especially creating the mold
Manuel Barsallo
you can still use the flange, just tape the bag around the flange towards the back of the mold, that way the bag doesn't sit on the free edge (where it would not seal and suck air in). you don't have to wrap the whole thing... also less slack on the bag is better

does this process work with fiber glass as well? If I wanted to make a mold of my over fenders would it be the same process but replace everything with fiber glass?

You can actually salvage your door by using super glue and baking powder. Seriously, no joke.

why didn't you use fiberglass its indeed more stronger, mush easy to cast, cheaper.... :) just a suggestion....
David Poynter
David Poynter Year ago
Completely bag your part, the only way you will pull the needed vacuum.
Mike Metcalfe
Mike Metcalfe Year ago
Your first coat in the mold is the carbon fiber then you can put just fiber glass after with tinted black resin. The back of the door can be made the same way. If your wrapping or painting the door just use fiberglass
Tim Vo
Tim Vo Year ago
The mold might still be usuable, just use a bigger plastic bag that can wrap around the entire mold or 2x the plastic bag you had and seal outside the mold. (Don't try to seal against the mold, seal the bag)
Daniel Chaves

I hope you were using cheaper carbon fiber for the under layers and kept the show layer of carbon fiber a single layer? Also hope you were alternating the carbon fiber weave in your layers for added strength. Fantastic first semi second attempt. 😁
Chris Cole
Chris Cole Year ago
Cheap and free bracing for the fibreglass splashes (molds) you are making is the triangular cardboard packaging that comes with large fragile packages. Cut it to length and lay them in after the second layer of fibreglass cloth.
Lolatyou332 Year ago
Crazy how people are working on making carbon fiber parts for super cars but can’t spend the time to learn the proper procedures on how to do it. The wax is to prevent mechanical locks, the vacuum is meant to prevent air bubbles. What you should have done after seeing the bubbles would have been to use a heat gun to get rid of them. Using an initial layer is also pointless.

I've never tried Toro but would like to try. Some company that will remain nameless has so lost my business. I have pictures of before and after and they say I scratched bumper and guess what back one had scratches front one there was none and I have pictures showing at airport thise scratches there with a date and time. Fighting them now as they say I could fake them they dont want to see them.

Your mould need to be stiffer or otherwise the end product might have other dimensions. Then Vacuum resin infusion is the way to go!

great job for the first time, protect your skin when cutting, that stuff is itching like he'll, I subscribed to your channel, I would recommend to sprinkle some fiberglass on the fresh not yet hardened gel coat, chemical bond is great , but mechanical and chemical is better , to stop your mold from flexing use a foam that is 1 cm thick in between the layers of fiberglass , fiber glast sells them , and cut your Matt's in advance you will loose less material , and its easyer to work if you are prepared , and there is a aluminum. roller that will help you roll out air bubbles. while applying resin , if I need my mold not to flex I cast it into solid concrete after its done, and I vibrate it very good to get it denser , it becomes super heavy to move, but if you add hooks into wet concrete , you can use a motor lifter for that
Alberto Uhia Piñeiro
why dont you use videos from easy composites?? your mistakes are not learning mistakes, they are from trying to do things other way than are wrong...

From what I've learnt the CF should go on dry (with just enough adhesive to lightly hold it in place). Then use an in-flow and out-flow to draw the resin across. There's a kind of mesh that goes on to keep the vacuum bag from laying completely flat as well.

I look in to making carbon fiber parts some time again and this guy give great info. This is his channel link m.us-first.info/player/video/i8yAqXupYXpoZHU.html You may want to see a good way of making your parts and light as possible. This will save you a lot of time and frustration.

Great video and thank for sharing! I truly appreciate the fact that you guys openly emphasized things that went wrong with the mold and part fabrication. That said, EZ Composites us-first.info/player/video/i8yAqXupYXpoZHU.html has a great instructional video showing an awesome technique for making your flanges in addition to applying a wax or clay fillet that prevents the gelcoat from seeping beneath the part. Looking forward to your future videos on this Huracan build! Cheers...

Wait, I thought Carbon Fiber was some type of metal?
Philip Marquis
David Outlaw nope. Carbon fiber is a fiberglass-like composite that becomes rigid when impregnated with epoxy resin.

It seems the pva is reacting with the rasin might of been an idea to practice on a small flat squre to reduce waste then go onto actual pannels. Mate used to work at pro-drive in england they use a wax in their moulds that melts to release the pannel from the mould. They make all the aston martin carbonfiber as well as many ither manufacturers
None ya Texas on the back 20
Reaction is called fish eye

Why not use a 3D printer? Another coincidence... a man who who's built a similar car by having 3D printed the body parts for a Lamborghini Aventador, and has a carbon fiber application technique. He's set a $20,000 (USD) budget. It'd be great to see his project merged with the strengths of the B is for Build frame and motor efforts.

this was painful to watch, I studied and learned before I started to practice. Vacuum injected resin is one of the best ways to go. This was way too painful to watch and not a good way to go about it. very expensive mistake don't do what you did again try the vacuum injected resin way is much better. nice try though

You're going to find you want more edge than simple tape provides. I use coroplast, basically extra large signboard with about 3" all the way around and fill in those gaps with wax to prevent the gelcoat overlapping issue you saw. You want some fiber to overlap and extra room for taping the vacuum bag. Also you need to wet sand the mold down to 3k to prevent that resin issue you're seeing. A great vid altogether, just stuff to consider for next time

Hi Chris, I am really impressed you are giving this a go.... it is my dream do do a whole car in carbon! Easy composites have been the best tutorials I have found so far. There are so many bits that they suggest which you didnt do. Watch their 3 part of how to build a carbon fibre hood. They really did the process well.

If the carbon fiber is this hard to shape, I'd go with aftermarket fiberglass bumpers from FGP-Stuff on the car to save some time in the rebuild. They're a hell of a lot cheaper than name brand ones. Samcrac used them and they look great. Also if you wanna compete with Cleetus and Ruby, I'd use the titanium aftermarket exhaust. That shaves a good amount of weight off the back. Unless you have to make a custom exhaust to fit because of the LS engine.

Instead of pulling vacuum on already impregnated material, why not pull the vacuum at corner futher away and pull resin in from opposite corner, only thing is you nee to lay some runners.

I admire your spirit but I work with carbon fibre and can tell you there are so many pitfalls with what you are trying, it will take you months of practice to reliably create and use moulds to a high standard. Gotta be worth bringing in an expert to take care of all the bodywork and leave you to concentrate on the huge amount of remaining work?

Christian Berens
I'm an engineer in aerospace and work for a large aerospace space company in composites. One of the things I noticed is your vacuum bagging. One of the things we use is called tacky tape (at work we refer to it as dum dum) similar to this - tacky-tape.com/products/vacuum-bags/sm5142/ it looks like sticky tack you use to hang things on the wall or whatever, but it comes out in a nice strip and you can get a good seal. Another thing I noticed is on your radius for the door. You definitely have to work the fabric in to the radius to make sure your bag will have a chance. The vac won't magically suck it down in to the radius unfortunately. That's where we see wrinkles and voids most commonly. We also use pre-preg, but your method should work as well. If you have other fabrication questions feel free to ask, my wife and i love your show and our 2 year old daughter does as well!
