ok here's an update on my build. as some may know i am juggling a couple builds right know for an upcoming event( Sacramento LanFest). so bare with me. :lol: so in the last few days i have got my reverse mold finished and tonite i rolled out the CF. it is under vacuum as i type. the vacuum process takes about 2hrs to set resin versus 48hrs if you let air dry. and the end result will be a lot better.......i hope :blackeye: this material was very hard to work with so i don't recommend trying at home....lol. i planned on putting on 6 layers but my resin started to get tacky and i had no choice but to ditch 2 layers for now. i can always add more...which i might but i am running out of time with LanFest April 8-10 ......only a couple of weeks away so i hope 4 layers is good...we will see. anyways enjoy. and thanks for looking.

I'll get the web addy's when I gt home. I bought all my stuff and one website and CF from another. You will have to find a fitting at orchard to adapt vacuum to compressor.

Thanks for the info! ^_^. Not sure which items came from where. Is the venturi vacuum from mia? I know you are busy with your build, but after the contest, could you do the whole internet a favor and make a simple tutorial on carbon fiber for dummies? We;d all love you for it!

Oh man- carbon fiber is surprisingly cheap! I guess all the costs associated with it is labor, huh?

Actually a lot of my parts came from ACP Composites I just couldn't find the web addy. As for CF I would say it is cheap I have about $600 just in materials so depends on how big a Pc u want in CF. But when this is done I'll put up a how to on my gaming clan web addy which is

Awesome, thanks.

Wow $600? but it's only 35$ a yard- cheaper than some leathers- is it because you have to layer it?
