I'm not much of a body man. I could spend the rest of my life trying to get happy with it, but this is it. Time to make a body...

Mold started, no turning back now. Sure hope I don't screw this up.

Excellent. You should do a fine job. Are you keeping the seam lines consistent? In other words, all vertical or all horizontal, or are you doing a mix and match depending on the part?

Most parting lines run longitudinal, but I have two (one each side) that have to go up the side so the mold doesn't get trapped. I was hoping to get away with honey wax for the mold. Had some sticking in the back (not terrible) so I ordered some PVA to eliminate that.

Got about a ply and a half laid up on the lh side for the mold. Put in about 5 hours tonight 16 oz of resin at a time. I'm beat time for bed.

I hope you are keeping detailed records of materials, time and cost. Would be very interesting to know, and help you price your body if you should choose to sell them.
