for the last few months ive been working on this project for a team of designers/builders of custom sports cars. today marked a milestone in the project and i cant help but post it for my twisted world to see.
the photos are of what is called a body plug, from this we will make molds for a carbon fiber body, the frame of the car and the drive line are complete, it has already raced in scca, auto cross, and solo, and finished very well. i was brought in at the end of the project, so, i cant realy take much credit for the shape of the car but i did spend a good bit of time bringing the body into a smoother finished shape. about 300hrs since november, i figure i have at least another 20 or so sanding and polishing this part to a mirror finish. in its final form this car will be 500+hp and street legal in 50 states. i know i have posted the concept drawing before but i just cant help myself. when complete this thing is going to be cool. these guys have build several cars in the past all of which have done well.

this is the concept drawing

this is the final finish (almost) of the body plug, im the giant standing next too the little asian girl.

Great looking ride, hook up WBL with a ride.
yes that is the market that we are shooting for,
the project is being privetly funded for the time being.
i hope i will be able to stay on for most of the rest of the job, i was brought on to specificaly smooth the body, and prepair it for the mold makeing process, so, in a way, for the time being, im done (almost). i realy want to learn the mold making process and the vacume forming of the parts. the guys are realy nice to work with. and yes glen dandy im a fucking giant and the girl next to me is quite petite.

I've worked around composite modeling for 10 yrs its all fun and games till you have to trim the material when you pull it from the mold. That shit is a 100 times worse than fiberglass. It never seems to go away. Not to mention its abrasive as hell whatever it gets in it will wear it out.



Oh by the way bitchin ride. Nice work!

A friend of mine races Miatas and has some kind of sponsorship through Mazda for them. I never thought racing a fag car like a Miata with basically a few street mods would be so exciting to watch. Fucking killer.
