Depends on how many ounces the fabric is and part design. Just guessing I'd say 1 5.7 oz carbon, 1 5.7 oz kevlar and 1 11 oz carbon. Hope that helps.

all of my experience is with pre-preg, and if i was doing that i would say at least 4-5 layers. i don't know a whole lot about the wet layup stuff other than its heavier. but i would have to imagine 4-5 would still be in the ballpark. i can tell you a layer of pre-preg is only .010" so if it was 5 layers your only talkin .050"
