A lot of further filler, sanding had to be used and done to achieve some sort of a smooth finish, it needs to be as smooth as phisically possible to allow the moulding process to take place

Now with the 2 parts smoothed as best I could, I applied release agent and started to build up the preliminary mould

I trimmed the mould up and begun to break out the part. Once I had released it I gave it a guide coat and started to removes any bits of the texture from the old poverty spec dash surfaces. Once I was happy with the finish I blanked the 2 holes where the glove boxes where and glassed them up

I did the same process as before as in I trimmed the mould and broke out the plug. Also prepped the mould buy polishing and applying release agent, then I started laying up the composite carbon stack and begun the infusion process, only a few pics of this im afraid but im sure you get the idea.

As you can see the dash is extremely shiny, which although looks good it is not so good when racing on track as it will reflect everything, Si I set about masking it up and flocking strategic areas and leaving not crucial areas with the carbon exposed.
