So Ebrabaek makes carbon fiber fabrication look really easy! I have two pieces curing over night, both of them are just test beds for how I will actually do it later. One of them is a flat bracket with 8 layers and one is a flat nose piece with 6 layers. I feel like I may have used a little too much resin given that I am a noob at this. We shall see tomorrow hahaha!

Points of blunder, you must ensure that the paraffin has dried before putting resin on it, other wise it gets kind of gross! Despite wearing gloves I still got resin everywhere, luckily I could throw everything I touch away like brushes. Lastly it is definitely finesse when it comes to it. I will wake up early and watch some more videos and see how bad my stuff came out. I chose to practice with flat pieces before progressing to more difficult things. And now it is back to beer
