you guys should have used a high density foam for the mold. easy to shape and very light and rigid.

I'm glad you actually are going through with this mark. I more than likely wont get one for my car... but I may pick one up JUST BECAUSE it's finally getting done.

Bravo brotep.

Hey not much to update atm. We made it out of clay and it broke before we could make the mold. Then my daily broke down and I have been without a car for about a week. I'm hoping to get some progress made this coming week. Sorry for slow progress but its hard balancing all this stuff. I will keep you all posted on the progress however.

Hey you guys should try using floral foam. U know that green stuff they use for making fake plants. Idk what design you guys are trying to do but if you need to you can glue layers together to give you your basic dimensions. Then get a cutting tool to cut your basic design, then just sand down to smooth the edges of your shape. Get it all nice and smooth then cover with aluminum foil, bondo and sand and work til smooth and then paint. Boom ya got your og mold. Just saying.
