Okay. Popped the splash mold off my donor tail. It came off fucking miraculously easy. The wax and Partall film worked beyond my wildest expectations.






I found that the splash mold is thin in a couple of places because I missed a couple of areas with multiple layers. I am pretty sure I could do the other side and it would be fine, but...


Due to the ease with which this worked (and I have 3 days off here). I am going to go ahead and re-prep the donor tail, re-glass it with more layers (cut a little better this time) and give it a proper go.

Future plans with this? Once I make a splash mold, I will then make a plug (a buck, a positive part) to work into the final shape. I bought 2-part foam from TAP plastics and I am going to fill the buck in areas where I am doing significant shaving. Once that is done, we will start all over for a final part.

I guess I could have gone the foam route (and nothing says I won't have to) but I really wanted to try this for my own sake and for the sake of practice. Note: This time went waaaaaay better than those gill-like ribs I was planning on the 600 back when. So repeating this is good for my skill set.

Okay, update time. The original splash mold was too thin. I made another one. It also wasn't good enough, so I made third. It turned out great. I made two bucks out of this mold. The first sucked, the second turned out good enough to start fucking around with.

Mold:



First buck:





Lastest buck in the splash mold:


New buck:




Next step is to mix a little 2-part foam and back the areas I intend to shave.
If this fails, I am going to go ahead and try sculpting a foam buck.

Thanks, guys.

Okay, so I know there have been a couple of threads talking about using two-part non-flexible foam.

There are a couple of things to consider with this mixture:

1) Once mixed, significant heat is released as a by-product of the reaction. If you have a form or have material that will come into contact with the foam as it sets up - make sure it will not deform under the heat (and I mean hot to the touch kind of heat).

2) When the directions say mix until it looks like coffee and then immediately apply it - they mean IMMEDIATELY. Expansion rate is... robust.

3) DO NOT try and 'contain' as it expands. I ruined the first tail because I tried to dam the lower part to contain the foam. DO NOT do this - it'll blow out your mold.

4) Make the number of pours higher and amounts lower, if possible. I did the tail below with three pours (tip of the tail and then the two sides). Each pour was 4oz of each part.

5) Have acetone ready to clean off spills. The foam dissolves in acetone. I usually acetone directly into the mixing cup (about 1/3) and run the mixer in there. A few seconds and clean as a whistle.

Essential tools:


Essential chemicals:


Et voila!




I imagine I will trim some tomorrow, but the other half has upped my op-tempo on the wedding stuff (T-minus 3 days).

Got some time today to DW:

The marking out of lines:


I chopped the unnecessary pieces off:



This is what I started with:


A quick shape:


And finally ended up with this:



Yes, it is a little crooked because the lens is being held in with finish nails as a mock-up.

Used a Dremel to begin the seating for the tail light:


Here's the difference:
