    I did some of the housing for the switch board and then realized that bondo is a resin is to difficult to use to get a smooth build so I'm going to just make the frame out of wood and epoxy it to the carbon fiber and the rest of the frame.

    I'll start crafting the wood tomorrow when I get the chance.

    Here are some nasty picutres of the rough frame came out. Gonna redo it with the wood framing.


    Tomorrow I'll do the back of the frame hopefully and get some epoxy and seal it all in and get rid of all the gaps obviously.

    Okay didn't get around to the backdrop yet because I had another idea which was to spend hours on bondoing and sanding. I dropped the whole idea of the wooden side frame because that's rediculous and I had a shortened school day today. Total I spent about 9 hours. Doing many different layers and areas of bondo trying to get all the curves symmetrical.





    Let me know if you think those curves are good. Next is the wooden backdrop. I need to think of a way to seal it to the bondo frame then it's off to painting. Then to bolting in carbon fiber and drilling switch holes.
