The hard top is nearly 16 feet square, and so we lay up the panel in 2 pieces as our laminating table is alittle over 8' wide and is 20' long.
We glass one side of the foam and bag it. We will then glue and glass the panel together and then put it on the form we are building the bridge on the have the proper crown in the top.
We will cut a groove in the top and place wires in the foam for the lighting
, then fill the grooves with epoxy
the top of the hard top and freeze the shape.
The panels are 1" H-60 Divinycell, glassed with 100" 34 oz. 0-45/45 tri-ax and epoxy
We have the 100" glass woven for the project
We laid up half of the top yesterday and the other half today.
Forest has also been working on the dash area for the bridge.
The table is waxed and coated with PVA. We lay out the glass, fold it in half and wet out the table, then wet out the glass and roll it out.
The roll resin on the foam and put it in place.
Then the bagging film, breather cloth, then the bag.
Pump it down to 19 inches of vacuum and fix the leaks
Makes a damn nice panel.
