Fairings continued

Fairings continued

While waiting for the rest, I redid 2 wheel fairings. Indeed, I had damaged one. The technique has not changed, the plywood templates are glued to the roofmat, which are cut out. The templates are removed before sanding the shaped part.

I packed the 2 pieces in packing tape. Here they are below near the one already made.

Two layers of fiberglass fabrics twill at 220g / m2 and epoxy resin. As usual, I used a “divine sacred condom” to improve the surface finish.

After drying, we unmolded, or rather we destroy the roofmat… And here are the 3 pieces

I still have to use finishing resin, and coated to finish the job.
