The Gen 1 bed cover is what I'd really really really like, with the louvers and stuff...
Painted a colour to match a two tone brat maybe...
Mmmmmmm:)

If you've got access to perfect condition body parts, you could get into hoods and other things of that nature. Since you've had experiance the mold making process would be pretty simple I'd say.

Good luck with the venture:headbang:

To be honest, shipping would kill me if you guys could get something together at an alright price, therefore, my opinion is kinda useless at the moment...

I'm working with all sorts of pre-preg glass and woven graphite.

Let me know if you need some small pieces.We toss out lots of small usable pieces and occassionally some larger pieces.

Going to start my own work-ups later this year.

Sure will,in the not so distant future.

I need to get past my probation period then I'll start asking about taking scraps home.Lots of scraps!!

Any special pre preg that's easier,better,better looking,etc.??Also going to need some lessons on resins to use,the whole nine yards.Right now I'm a cutter but will probably have to train on som lay-up.Just had a class in handling,etc. basic info for aircraft mfg.,etc.

Maybe we can get a conversation going through email,or PM sometime soon.Got lots of questions.

Take care,
Paul
