Cool Re: Softop installation no Holes

I'm still looking for a shop to do a bunch for me but so far not having much luck to get the price down and Im not really interested in doing all these by my self cause don't have the time and from my experience it doesn't really pay. I"ll keep looking for a bit anyway hopefully a small shop will step up. Also making a second piece for this mold so it can be sandwiched and left to cure without having to babysit it right up till it goes off. But again it's taking another week to build that part too. Should have it ready to go by end of month if I find the time.

Re: Softop installation no Holes

Sorry I was away on holidays
I had four parts come back from composite shop a week ago. I was not too inpressed with the results and my thinking is I cant sell these cause they dont match my idea of a saleable item. I'm now looking for another shop who can follow instruction more closely. Thes parts are complex in that they have multiple degrees of bends and twists that the cloth doesnt conform to. I dont like bubbles and the correct thickness is very important .I will keep this site up to date when I have something that will be presentable .Regards Rob

Re: Softop installation no Holes

Ok update is as I have been noticing the faults in design and had to go back and redo some flaws. So I now have that under control but still not having much luck with finding fiberglass shop to do them and might have to do them myself. However I do have another person coming to assess the production mode in the next week or so. So now I am at the point were driving down the hyway at 60 mph does not produce any wind penetrating the seal Which I find impressive.havent drivin much in the rain yet but the little I have has not proven any leaks
The next hurdle is having warm enough weather so they cure properly cause wife wont let me do them in garage cause of the stink in the house. At the end of the day the product has to pass my quality assurance which is what's killing my time and investment but I don't want to see my name bashed on this site either so the wait as far as I"m concerned is no real concern in that testament. Once everything is good to go it will produce one piece per day just can't quite give you the starting date yet. Hope that gives you some enough info .

Regards Rob

Re: Softop installation no Holes

Ok good news .... The adjustments to the mold worked out beautiful ...The other good news is I have a person to do a test piece for me to assess weather the product he puts out for me is good enough for you Also the price needs to be relatively in touch with my orig suggested price barring that I hope to start running parts as soon as he impresses the hell out of me .I was hoping the part could have been gel coated in the mold but its not working out quite that we'll .But who know maybe the new guy Will impress the hell out of me.regards Rob
