anyway you can show us or tell us a bit more about your process of making these parts with carbon? You mentioned you use pressure and not vacuum, I for one would like to know more about the process.
Yes, I use pressure instead vacuum because this way give me the chance to work with 3-4 Kg/cm2 or sometimes, even more. (in one of the photos above, you can see that the seat mold is reinforced with an iron structure). I think this way allows me to make more complicated pieces with more sharp angles, and also have less resin in the final result.
Another good reason is that when i started doing this kind of things, i had a compressor but not a vacuum pump. Everything influence a bit
Here you can see another part (from a wheelchair) i did with pressure. I can´t do photos with more detail ´cos i don´t have the parts but i´ll show you some photos of the molds.DSC02358

Right now i´m trapped trying convert my Sram Red in a 11sp group, (here are some photos) but when i finish it, i ´ll do a simple carbon part with mechanics pressure and another hollow part with air globe pressure and i´ll post both here step by step.carbon 25t
