This turned out to be easier than I thought. Especially with the skilled hands of Jaques.
Step 1: prep the surface, my little scratches with 600 grit paper were not enough. Jaques took it down to the first layer of carbon
Step 3: cut carbon, dacron, vacuum bag, and felt stuff.
Step 4: paint a bit onto the frame
Step 5: paint into the carbon fiber following the grain, not too much not too little
Step 6: fold over aluminum foil and cut the carbon fiber to fit the frame
Step 7: roll onto frame(no pictures because I was helping)
Step 8: roll on dacron
Step 9: roll on vacuum bag
Step 10: roll on felt
This past weekend I did the otherside myself, in order to stiff it up in relation to the drive side.
Hopefully it all holds up.
