Today was a public / bank holiday, so I got to go visit Jonathan and pick up the Groove Armada Stab moulds, (And my K2M that he very kindly fixed for me).

Thank you again for all your help Jon, I got home had dinner, did dady jobs, and straight to it (Well I managed to get a coat of paint on first)

To finish the CSK bosses, I took a piece if carbon tube 8mm od and about 5mm id and ran my chamfer tool down it, put a piece of cloth in side and pretended to make fire. it was quite effective.

The plan is to have it read to be sprayed this weekend, with the second centre panel.

Seeing the progress other are making has given me some inspiration to get the stab in the bag.

I managed to get some time this afternoon to prepare the materials.
100g bi-axial carbon, 2x 300g x 30mm UD, Lanor core layer, 100g bi-axial, peel ply perforated release film, 4 x kitchen towel.

The top is the same with the addition of of 100g kevlar for the hinge.

I managed to do both sides with 65g of resin (50g resin + 15g hardener)

As its cooling down I got my warm box up and running again and its all cooking!

So we have a result

Not the best as there was paint sticking in the mould

But its well usable.

So I used mguires blue wax in place of the semi perminent release agent used before. I wanted to try this again, but am regreting it now. The easy lease was much better first pull results. Some where there is some method in my madness.

Also came out a bit heavy. not put it on scales yet but I am thinking 200g or so, so I may need to make a lighter for the prototype.
