How to Make a Carbon Fiber Car Bonnet/Hood - Part 3/3
Incredible series of advanced composites video tutorials showing exactly how to make a professional carbon fibre (fiber) car bonnet/hood. In Part 3 of the series we trim the inner and outer carbon fibre skins using Perma-Grit tungsten carbide tools and finish them with sanding blocks and abrasive paper. We glue bonding fasteners in place for the hinge and latch mechanisms using ET500 epoxy adhesive before bonding the upper skin and the lower skin together using PT326 polyurethane adhesive to make the finished carbon fibre hood, ready to be fitted to a car.
