Just past 1000 subscribers! For those interested - in the last 12 months people have spent just over 4500 hours watching my channel. The CF videos have been very popular (for me) and I'll be doing a few more. YouTube is all about having a few videos that get consistent views so that my regular episodes (which don't get much attention) can be carried along by that wave of views.

If you have ideas - let me know.

Things that are in the works:
Short instructional videos on carbon fibre infusion stuff.
Welding sheet metal (MIG, TIG, Gas)

Finished the details on the fenders. Added the rear closing panels, the front nose section bracket, and headlight rings.

TADA.

They actually fit!

The details.

Fit is good...considering I haven't fit them yet.

All in weight. 2.75 kg!

Amazing! It's one thing to pull a part in CF, it's another to pull three parts that glue together properly, and yet another to do all of that and have them fit the car so well. What a relief!

Lighter than expected as well. Same weight when untrimmed. I think in the video the scale was at 2.8 kg (checks footage...yup) so more like 2.755 or so. The headlight area did need some sanding to get the fit right, but when done, there is something like 8 layers of CF, so it's fine. The entire fender is so amazingly stiff it sort of defies description. It has a resonance that you don't get from fibreglass. It's also stiffer than steel. A ton of work, but worth it.

Next.
