keiths fiberglassed trunk
wanted something different for my ex husbands trunk and rear deck in his escort. we got to work. fiberglassing is not too easy specially when this was our first try at it. so much to build up the trunk and i think it turned out great. took a while but we got it. build the box out of wood then filled it with spray foam for sound. then making sure the speakers fit. taking them out, smoothing it all out getting prepped for paint. the rear deck was the same way... sorry i dont have more pics of the fiber glassing process. i gotta see if i can locate more.
keiths carbon fiber....
this was the hardest thing i have done yet. bought the carbon fiber from a guy in texas. did you know that real fibers dont burn? we tried thinking that it would help them seal up. nope doesnt burn. so plan two. we will sand all the paint down and spray adhesive to stick the cf fabric. well when you clear that the adhesive will seap back up through the clear. so that doesnt work either. from my experience use resin and then lay the cf fabric down smooth it out and be gentle cause the fibers stick to anything especially rough skin and nails. it will pull apart. you want the fibers to be as close together as possible for a good clean look. then after smoothing it out you need to gel coat it. that is something we havent done yet. clear doesnt work so well you need to gel coat it to make it thick and professional looking. if anyone has any ?s feel free to ask anything i didnt explain i can.
