Hi... i haven't worked with composites in awhile..i've really only used E-glass and only wet-layups. I'm thinking about a couple of projects out of fiberglass and wonder if Carbon fiber is any more difficult to use vs E-glass, etc?
My metal cowl is a little too small as-is...but i was thinking about using it as a mold and adding bumps for the rocker covers. I dont know what to expect as far as weight savings? Do i need to use a vacuum-bag type of setup with carbon to see the benefit?
Same for wheelpants...i'm still half tempted to form them out of aluminum.
Here is a picture of the cowl...you can see it has one bump that would work ok for a layup pattern.
I'll also either have to shorten the cowl or cut a new firewall to work the shape in.
Any of you with recent experience chime in.
