      you can still use the flange, just tape the bag around the flange towards the back of the mold, that way the bag doesn't sit on the free edge (where it would not seal and suck air in). you don't have to wrap the whole thing... also less slack on the bag is better

      does this process work with fiber glass as well? If I wanted to make a mold of my over fenders would it be the same process but replace everything with fiber glass?

              You can actually salvage your door by using super glue and baking powder. Seriously, no joke.

                Yeah you skip too many steps there's tons of videos on YouTube that shows exactly how to do it just look at all of them and try to figure out how to combine them... still many props brother good luck

                  why didn't you use fiberglass its indeed more stronger, mush easy to cast, cheaper.... :) just a suggestion....

                    Completely bag your part, the only way you will pull the needed vacuum.

                        Your first coat in the mold is the carbon fiber then you can put just fiber glass after with tinted black resin. The back of the door can be made the same way. If your wrapping or painting the door just use fiberglass

                          The mold might still be usuable, just use a bigger plastic bag that can wrap around the entire mold or 2x the plastic bag you had and seal outside the mold. (Don't try to seal against the mold, seal the bag)

                            I hope you were using cheaper carbon fiber for the under layers and kept the show layer of carbon fiber a single layer? Also hope you were alternating the carbon fiber weave in your layers for added strength. Fantastic first semi second attempt. 😁

                              Cheap and free bracing for the fibreglass splashes (molds) you are making is the triangular cardboard packaging that comes with large fragile packages. Cut it to length and lay them in after the second layer of fibreglass cloth.

                                Crazy how people are working on making carbon fiber parts for super cars but can’t spend the time to learn the proper procedures on how to do it.

                                The wax is to prevent mechanical locks, the vacuum is meant to prevent air bubbles. What you should have done after seeing the bubbles would have been to use a heat gun to get rid of them. Using an initial layer is also pointless.

                                    I've never tried Toro but would like to try. Some company that will remain nameless has so lost my business. I have pictures of before and after and they say I scratched bumper and guess what back one had scratches front one there was none and I have pictures showing at airport thise scratches there with a date and time. Fighting them now as they say I could fake them they dont want to see them.

                                      Your mould need to be stiffer or otherwise the end product might have other dimensions. Then Vacuum resin infusion is the way to go!

                                                            great job for the first time, protect your skin when cutting, that stuff is itching like he'll, I subscribed to your channel, I would recommend to sprinkle some fiberglass on the fresh not yet hardened gel coat, chemical bond is great , but mechanical and chemical is better , to stop your mold from flexing use a foam that is 1 cm thick in between the layers of fiberglass , fiber glast sells them , and cut your Matt's in advance you will loose less material , and its easyer to work if you are prepared , and there is a aluminum. roller that will help you roll out air bubbles. while applying resin , if I need my mold not to flex I cast it into solid concrete after its done, and I vibrate it very good to get it denser , it becomes super heavy to move, but if you add hooks into wet concrete , you can use a motor lifter for that

Then use an in-flow and out-flow to draw the resin across. There's a kind of mesh that goes on to keep the vacuum bag from laying completely flat as well.

I truly appreciate the fact that you guys openly emphasized things that went wrong with the mold and part fabrication. That said, EZ Composites has a great instructional video showing an awesome technique for making your flanges in addition to applying a wax or clay fillet that prevents the gelcoat from seeping beneath the part. Looking forward to your future videos on this Huracan build! Cheers...
