Progress on the red CTS-V set…

After getting the CTS-V pieces wrapped over the weekend, it was time to start brushing on the epoxy.

The red kevlar does not soak up the epoxy very well, so it takes a few coats to get it saturated.

The black 8HS fabric is easily wetted out though.  Only took a few coats for the center console to start looking like real carbon fiber parts.

I am particularly fond of the cup holder cover.  It looks like it belongs on the Batmobile.

After a few more coats of epoxy, the red pieces start to darken up a bit and look more like they will when finished.

After a few days of curing, we’ll stick these parts in our oven for 36 hours to strengthen them and make them super hard.  After that we can start trimming off the excess fabric and epoxy, and get them sanded smooth.
