How to Make a Carbon Fiber Car Bonnet/Hood - Part 2/3
Incredible series of advanced composites video tutorials showing exactly how to make a professional carbon fibre (fiber) car bonnet/hood. In Part 2 of the series we use make the outer carbon fibre skin of the part using an epoxy compatible polyester gelcoat surface followed by 200g carbon fibre reinforcement with a Lantor Soric infusion grade core material and then another layer of 200g carbon fibre. The part is laminated with epoxy using the resin infusion method. The inner skin is made using resin infusion of a 200g and 660g layer of carbon fibre.

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.
