The reader is shown how to use glass strand mat, woven fiberglass cloth, carbon fiber cloth, and hybrid fabrics for particular applications. The strength of these mats and ideal uses are covered in detail. Also shown is how to correctly mix the typical resins (polyester, epoxy), hardeners, and gels. Core materials, such as wood, foam, and honeycomb Nomex, are often used to add strength to various parts. All the relevant tools, including mixing containers, holding containers, saws, scissors, files, and shaping tools, are discussed. Constructing wood patterns to exacting standards from wood, Formica, aluminum, and other materials is essential and covered in detail.
Whether repairing existing components, fabricating new ones, building a race car, or restoring a classic, this is the one book to guide you through each critical stage.
