Sculpturing of the G1 passenger side door panel model in progress. Capturing a complex shape such as this with multiple angles, depths and curvatures requires the use of several measuring tools and multiple templates.

That's great. I will need to update the installation guide to add some tips on getting armrest, console & dash to align; it will take some shifting & spacing adjustments. I will be clearing the work bench soon of the G1 door panel design work. Next I will finish Finish a couple Fi512 noses and a few dashes.

Rob...so let me clarify...just to ensure I understand what you stated...WAIT on the dash install...because it would be easiest to do both at the same time for perfect alignment of everything?

If so...thanks up front for sharing....that will alter time-line, but would rather do it right the 1st time!

I received a PM from Amida saying that it would be a couple of weeks before he could continue to work on the door panels due to some replica interiors that need to be finished first.

So do I need to pause on order more G1 dashes to get the door panels completed?

HI all

I know nothing concerning making molds so I thought I would ask an artist. Over at another forum there is someone posting what he calls molds that are suppose to be made in China. My question is, why are they painted. I have not asked the poster yet, as I thought I would a master first.

So with all that being said, should you paint molds? Would they last longer?

Thanx,

I believe a big part of having them a contrasting color is it is easier to tell when the molds are becoming damanged from repeted use and also makes it easier to see the air bubbles so you can remove them as you lay your glass.

Gelcoating the mold surface when initially building the mold, or subsiquently fabricating a part in the mold is essential to obtaining a good quality part. Gelcoating provides a smooth, hard, bubble free, surface which aids in mold-to-part separation. Gelcoating a part also protects the mold surface from damage/scratches during the lamination process, and also provides a thin easily sandable surface, free of bubbles & glass fibers to perform pre-paint prep work.

Hope that helps.
