Skinning the nose
November 27, 2002
is done, it's 2:30pm and I told the guys, "We have to
finish this damn thing today because we're taking thursday
off for turkey day". Jack and I will attach the nose
to the chassis on friday.
get to cut the materials for the giant layup.
Cabosil to fill all of the low spots.
this thing done in time, all 3 body buddies have to haul ass!
we wet the part with gray pigmented resin.
lay the material on the surface and work like crazy.
can see, I do one half and the other two try to keep up with
by piece. We do the center, then each side, and then the front.
this thing looked like crap (although structurally sound),
but in 3 hours it's transformed into a new part.
is now laid and Andy and I are covering the part in the final
that the matt soaks up is enough for the layer of cloth. This
keeps the part lighter and stronger.
what it looks like when it's wet, before the matt is applied.
to look like a new part! To this point it's taken about 1
is finished and the cloth has been applied to the inside of
than a piece of paper (which is catching some drips while
Andy and Jack are finishing the top of the fender), it's done
at approximately 5:00pm.
Happy Thanksgiving from the gang at Gunnar!
