I think this case is a candidate for your best work ever.

Check out my earlier post, fabbed bay on top

Heres the tools I use to sculpt the insulation foam, but it's always good to experiment on your own.

To cut thick foam, I use a snap-off blade utility knife.



To smooth the pieces, I use a Surfoam Shaver by Stanley Tools


For making intricate details in the foam, I'll use an array of the tungsten carbide cutter bits from Dremel, I mainly use the #9911

Thank you!

Next stage is to cove the foam core with Fiberglass Filler, sand that, then sculpt more features. Pondering idea for adding ribbed spines to the circular frames for the 3 intakes.

Great work as usual....I like this foam idea, will have to give that a go one of these days. Do you remove the foam after applying the short strand or do you leave it in for structural support?

It acts as core support

Found time today to get outside and start the process of smoothing out the fiberglass filler.

I'm predicting another week of sanding and grinding before the surface will meet my expectations.

I'm armed with Filtered Respirator, Black & Decker Mouse Sander and 120 grit sandpaper.. Let the transformation begin!

Note: This is Evercoat brand's Everglass "Short Strand" Fiberglass Filler
