Car looks amazing, can't wait to see it done. I just bought a hatch and was wondering how you were able to get it to sit that low and fit slicks under the stock quarters like that? I'm new to building race cars.

Finish is not quality enough for me to feel comfortable selling a set
I'd have to make new molds and really don't have the time currently
This composite stuff is a learning process and I really have no idea what I'm doing lol
Completely speachless on the build man, its just phenomenal!

As for the composite work, i can help you out as ive done a bunch of composites.

Im assuming your doing a hand layup, if so, you'll have better success with doing a vaccuum bagged or resin infusion layup.
Also the old school method of wax and pva doesnt make up the best finish' anymore without a perfect mold surface (wetsanding and polishing the part surface area helps the actual part finish a ton). It you look into a Semi-Permanent mold release agent (Frekote is my preferred choice) you can get some nicer parts.
With bare carbon, it helps to spray 3-4 layers of automotive clearcoat onto the mold prior to the part layup and lastly, the weight and weave of the carbon has an impact as well. I import 90% of my CF fabric from germany and use a twill weave fabric that is no more than 4.7oz/yd. its thinner and conforms more nicer to most shapes. You can also do some spread to CF that is simply stunning as well.


This is a scoop i did for a buddies Cuda before clear and polish:
