Love that you made the carbon yourself! Did you use a vacuum to help with making the carbon tub?

I know that, I meant if you put the entire mould and piece in a vacuum bag to help pull any airbubbles out of the resin. Looks great regardless.

Yeah that turned out very nice! It's difficult to get the carbon to lay down nicely like that around the curves!
