The final result of the bottom fiberglass mold (part).
After drying for 48 hours, the female mold is pulled of the plug. The surface coat gives the mold a nice smooth finish
The two molds are then taken down to C & D Aerospace in Santa Maria where the final layups will take place. The carbon fiber used is what's called pre preg (preinpregnated resin). It's suppose to be much lighter than wet layups because of the exactness of resin to cloth ratio, 40%.
