Re: 1981 FORMULA F233 RESTORATION

I would just tape off the console and spray another coat of paint with flattening agent mixed in.....not sure how uniform you can get something like that using a sanding technique.....usually, you go the other way with multiple steps of fine sanding to get it glossy....now you're trying to go backwa...

Re: Carbon Fiber vs E-glass

On the biax glass, would that be 0/90 or 45/45 that would be combined with the 0/90 carbon? I was thinking to do the same for the steps using the biax and carbon sleeve combination?

Don't sweat it. Each layer is only about a sixteenth of inch. Its not a problem.

Why are you worried about the three layers of glass?
