I've recently finished my first twintip http://myvirtualshed.blogspot.com
and thanks to this and a few other forums it came out pretty well.
This was my first attempt at fibreglassing and vacuum bagging so a lot of the trials and errors where around technique and not so much about design. However, now I've got my sights on doing a better job of it and there are a couple (of many) things I haven't quite got my head around.
Bottom sheet material and what pourable plastics to use for making the rails???
If I go with a nice slick bottom sheeet over the bottom what material would be best to use for an epoxy layup? What thickness, what stuff and what tricks (if any) are there getting it to bond... and how much $$ ??
Also, I used 4mm ABS sheet for the rails on my first board but would like to have a go at pouring the rails on the next one. A friend used epoxy and chopped fibres to pour the rails on his board but it seems like it might be a bit too brittle to be ideal for rails and he found that it tended to crack right through when it had a decent impact. Any suggests on specific plastic products to use for pouring rails?
Thanks in advance
