Hello, I presenting you the history of kit car construction performed entirely according to my own project. Since beginning it was planned to be a kit car with a closed bodywork, with weight not exceeding 550 kg (it was connected with binding regulations in Poland at that time which allowed to drive such vehicles from age 16) on component parts of Fiat Seicento. I applied a 1100ccm engine in the prototype but ultimately I authentic cowboys jerseys am planning authentic patriots jerseys to apply a 1400 ccm T Jet engine with power increased to 200 230 KM ; ). Apart from low weight, the second assumption was so that all used parts from manufactured vehicles come from Fiat/Alfa Romeo catalogue and were easily accessible.
Kozmo is financed by my own money which mk bags outlet run out. I'm still looking for funds. You have become an industrial designer. Now maybe you can find a good job. Going back to the beginning, the body cage: I do not see collapsible elements which will crush in a collision. Maybe you do not want, in a prototype, but think of these. Money: Consider which companies you hope will build these. These are the ones to go to, because if you succeed, they will benefit from getting the work.
Crazy CRAZY amount of work and dedication. Congratulations for taking it as far as you have and I hope you get to finish it :)
I would say that I would make sure to keep polyester resin (fiberglass resin) as far away from your prototype as possible unless you have sealed the foam really, really well. Polyester resin will dissolve your EPS foam very quickly. don ask me how I know. ;)
The foam melted away when it came in contact with the resin. Yes, i found out the hard way. : (
Epoxy resin won melt the foam :)
Agreed but the vast wholesale nfl jerseys majority of people use polyester resin because it dramatically cheaper than using epoxy. There are coatings you can spray on EPS foam to keep the resin from attacking it, but they, too, are not cheap.
I bet you could use a good water based house paint to protect the foam from Polyester resin, but epoxy would be worth the extra cost.
It always a good idea to test small samples of materials before coating large parts where you could lose a lot of time and/or money.
Sir, it looked like melting. What exactly happened i don know, i no chemist. Can you explain what happened?
In general terms, Polyester resin contains styrene and since you are using EPS (Expanded PolyStyrene) foam, the polyester resin acts as a solvent. Acetone and some other organic solvents will do similar things to EPS foam. What you could do is see if coating your prototype with an epoxy paint would prevent the Polyester resin from eating the foam (test it on a small piece of foam first, of course). There are other options out there and it depends on whether you plan to pull molds off of your vehicle, or, do a surface lamination and then somehow strip the internal structure and leave a shell. Just tell them what you doing and what you want to do, and they should be able to help you choose the right materials for the job.
