    Yeah, I know there is a lot of doubt. Why?? Well....it's never been done before. There are fiberglass ones out there, but they are hand laid pieces that are replica shapes. This is a casting process which actually reproduces the piece just as it sits on my truck. I guess you could equate it to cloning. (no pun intended)

    I just wanted to post pictures to show that it can be done. I could have almost purchased another Typhoon with the amount I've invested so far, but I am having fun learning. :bigthumb:

    Hell when I pulled that first part, I even amazed myself. :rofl:

    Not as of yet.

    If you haven't seen the news, the temps outside here in AZ are about 110 degrees, if not more. Being that I don't have an air conditioned area to work in, I cannot work out in that heat for any reasonable amount of time. Until the weather calms down, I can't continue the project. I've tried a couple times and got most of another mold done, but I wear out really quickly due to the heat.

    I do have that first piece I made sitting out in this heat though, subjected to all kinds of abuse, so it's a good testing ground for the materials I've chosen.

    :)

    Well, it's still summertime here, so my work outside is limited.

    In addition, I got engaged on the 1st of this month, so financially that has set me back a bit too.

    However, I am working on it. I picked up some more stuff yesterday and working on molds every day. Right now I'm working on figuring out if I can make the cladding a bit thicker to boost the strength of it so I'm working on a new mold that will facilitate that. No pics as of yet, sorry.

    Nothing to update as of last. I'm still waiting to get married before I put anymore money into the project. The wedding so far is upwards of $16k, so it's consuming a lot of time and money right now.

    That one piece I pulled was exposed to an entire Arizona summer. Had some minor discoloration, but if painted, I don't believe it to be a problem.

    But nevertheless I haven't given up on the project. :cool:
