laid this glass slab up, 22 layers of 400gram matt, don't it get hot
when it cures! This is about 1/2" thick and will be cut into
blocks and drilled & tapped before being bonded into the lower
spoiler edge to bolt the splitter to..
I overestimated on how big a slab to make (anyone need some 1/2"
thick glass) and also on how thick it needed to be ~ thank goodness
for belt sanders!
1st block is tapped & sanded a bit (lot) thinner, lol think I'll
cut the rest down on the bandsaw at work.
my grills back from the powder coaters today.
to put them straight back on the car, (as you do, lol) to see how
they look, I'm totally chuffed with them.
all may be wondering what the glass 'fishfingers' were for, lol.
Well here they are bonded to the front of the car, they will be glassed
in properly later but they are for bolting the front splitter to.
splitter is clipped to the front, yet to decide how much should
protude from the front of the bodywork though? (it will be trimmed
to follow the body shape).
splitter is now cut to size and fitted to the front.
in the good weather I got 2 coats of epoxy primer on the inside of
the front (it took 2 hours to mask the thing!).
