It's amazing how things come together, provided you just keep going. Final shaping is completed using 40 grit production paper bonded to long straight timbers. The next step is to coat the polystyrene in plaster, to provide a solid surface against which to apply glass and resin. The resultant plug may be painted in 2 pack and used to produce moulds.
At the time of writing BE3 has no corporate materials sponsor. If your company would like to offer support to the BE3 project: wood, polystyrene or polyurethane foam, we would like to hear from you. We will be using a similar technique to that shown in this series of pages, now that it is perfected. It does not take long to build a body this way. About a week to cut the plywood formers and another week to fill and shape the foam. Add another week for sanding and painting - and that is just three weeks in total. It takes longer than that to design the chassis. So the conceptual stage is where time must be invested.
The more time you spend thinking on a project, the less time you need to spend in the workshop.
