Cheap composites use the stinky polyester type resins. Because of the solvents in those resins, they eat some foams. Epoxy resin is what I used. Exposure to the epoxies give some folks allergic reactions. I have never had such reactions (bog-rash etc.), in my over 30-years of messing with the stuff. I might be from outer space though... LOLCool! Despite the itchy smellness of it, I like working with fiberglass. And this looks like a great application for it. I'm adding this to my mods to consider list. When it comes to time to replace my existing guards.
What did you use to stop your resin from eating the foam?
Nice. Full carbon plate would be the strongest, although it will have to be thick, to make up for it's stiffness being none shock-absorbing. A 1/4" or more. That will get pricey...Looks good so far.
I'm now considering this process for a skidplate.
I was just thinking..."Who makes their own composite parts"???"I don't want to though. I don't like working, after I've come home from work. Retired from composite manufacturing."
I get that! I used to be an automotive mechanic and I won't even look at other peoples vehicles. Still want to see your finished product though. Actually a pic of your whole bike would be nice.
