Good job !
its not easy to do
let me know if you figure out how to eliminate the flaws on the carbon under glass look doing a wet layup. Some come out better than others I recently made some low carbon screens and I spend hours and hours and hours trying to make them perfect and its just not worth selling them 15-20 hours in repairing bubbles and polishing, $50 in materials. At $180 each I end up making about $5 an hour after all the finish work and it still isnt perfect
I have been using the most expensive west systems epoxy, mixing carefully to avoid bubbles, 4 layers of carbon, vaccuum bagging etc . I tried making a better mold today and it failed . I will keep trying until I get it but I should just give up

buyers are particualar and they want absolute perfection like a vac machine produced stock acrylic screen
from a cloud of dust we race, then into the dust we return, across the finish line
