The mold is done
This week I was off-duty for three days and finally finished the mold!
It was about 30 hours of work in two days and a half.
Even using wax and PVA it was not easy to pull off the plug, but I am happy to say that it survived with only some minor scratches.
Thanks you all that helped in this job.
Next week I will polish the mold and make the holes for the bolts.
Hope you enjoy the photos!
PS: I will make a movie with subtitles in English next week explaining the details.
