Always glad to help (thats why i took the time to take and post the pics)

honestly this stuff is not that hard - really.. the pictures really do speak for themselves.

you can use practically anything for a mold - in this example i used cardboard (chipboard as they say in the upholstery world - wonderful cheap stuff)

heavy tinfoil (yes it matters) doesnt rip so easy

waterboard (thicker chipboard/cardboard)

a 30 dollar can of bondo brand fiberglass resin (comes with hardner) and some 3 ounce chopped mat

oh and some painters tape, and some 18 gauge metal for the brackets

a bit of abs plastic (1/8th inch) an some 1/4" luan plywood

some 1/4" and 1/8" sculpting foam

weldwood dap adhesive

some velcro (industrial grade)
yeah thats about it

oh and around 40-45 hours (so far) - that is the kicker :)

and after 4 days of this I cant wait to get the trunk done - after the 1st day i could hardly get outta bed my back was so sore (really..) was better after a days rest then i did the other 3 days no problem

best part though is that i learned some things about doing a trunk - course it aint done just yet, but if am learning I am generally happy

questions? ask away, no beverages required...NPHNP
