Day 6.....

The experienced lads have all gone back to work, so I'm getting a personal 1-1 tuition 8)

So today I've picked a module to complete, so job 1 is a CF toolbox, job 2 is a hybrid coaster with carbon and carbon/Kevlar... Job 3 is a CF brake duct from an F1 car and final job is an air duct from a WRC car.. 8)

Then I'm allowed to work on whatever parts I want, so making a load of CF frame protectors for my on-one c456, a bash ring for granny ring and outer ring, and hopefully a heat shield for an induction kit for my car... 8)

Pics to follow, but as I've not really had a sensible reply for ages I guess nobody really gives a stuff... :lol:

I would need to fabricate a mould, and alas I have not nearly enough time for that... :(

Day 7....

Making a CF toolbox, cured it today, broke it out the mould and tomorrow I'll be making the lid, sandwiching some nomex inbetween 2 CF laminates.

Also today I have also finished laying up the brake duct and air duct, ready for autoclaving in the morning..

During a quiet moment I managed to fabricate some frame protection for my OnOne carbon456

I purposefully laid one at 90deg and one at 45..

Very useful, thanks...

Day 9...

Been in the workshop trimming, polishing and finishing my laminates..

Air duct
Image

Coaster
Image

Tool box and lid...
Image

Car
Image

Also stuck together the 2 halves of my brake duct
Image
Image

Using this stuff
Image
Image
Which is a two part epoxy used by F1 teams to bond all their chassis' together...

Perfect stuff for bonding retro carbon frames (like an Alan) back together...

Final day tomorrow, and I don't want it to end :(

The dark orangey red hardener blows your bloody head off, with ammonia fumes...

We added black pigment to make it match the carbon colour.

Yea we've done similar things for home jobs. In industry it's left pink though.

Its also used to hold the leading edge on to helicopter rotor blades so pretty sturdy stuff... Well unless it gets hot (its weakness) we use some hysol glue for higher temp work.
