I wish now i had taken more pictures of the before but hindsite u no is 20/20.....
This pic is of the original dash after the broken corners have and various cracks had been repaired and the dash was sprayed with a release agent
After letting the release agent dry the next step was spraying the unit with a gel coat and letting it dry as well. Picture of the dash with gel coat applied and awaiting fiberglass ...
Next on the list laying the fiberglass and resin. A total of 4 coats of glass to give the mold plenty of strength was needed. Picture of dash covered with 2 coats of fiberglass and resin.
After applying the final glass and letting it "cook" the dash is seperated from the mold. Picture of the inside of new mold
Final clean up and prep is still needed at this point to be ready to test the mold out. So far this process has taken about 3.5 hours and still no dash lol. This weekend looks like it is going to work for a test run on the mold. I'm looking foward to seeing what the first one looks like
