Update
Hi been super busy with everything else lately .
Made a cutter to countersink the fasteners for the carbon exhaust tip cover .





I used a piece of tool steel ( parting tool from the lathe ) and a 1/4 inch drill bit , zip cut a slot in it and tacked the blade in.





Also got a new ( new to me ) tool Small milling machine , same brand as the lathe , it's old and needs some TLC , but it works ok for now , need some new cutting bits . should come in handy !!!!





Hope to get some time in on the truck this weekend .................

Zero time to work on the truck , got something done.
final paint on the plug for the mold , and sprayed with PVA and then Sprayed some Black tooling gel coat.



This is the PVA ( its a mold release ) several coats of mold release wax before this.


and this is the tooling gel coat



If the weather is any good tomorrow after work I will glass the back of the mold .

Small update
Zero time for Blue Thunder , just too busy with work ..... totally burnt out .
glassed the plug and made the mold for the exhaust tip cover , was rushed to get it done .
The plug took a beating , but that's ok , the mold is not bad , I was planning to use the same exhaust tip on the next project , there will be two of them out back in the defuser , so that's why I went to all this effort .
