I just so happen to have a new tank that is primed and would be a great candidate for a CF wrap

Thanks

Bob
$60 paid for:
36"x50" 2x weave twill carbon fiber (ebay) $27
Resin (half of a kit) $55/2 $26.5
2 brushes $2
2 popcicle sticks $0.04
a couple pairs of nitril gloves
some acetone for clean-up


Where are you located, and what kind of tank do you have? PM me.

This is very cool. I had been thinking about doing some carbon fiber work myself and this has given me some motivational ideas.
