And it's almost done. Well the chassis anyway, I still have no running gear for it etc. That will come soon though. All that's left is a few little details, a last polish on the carbon and to be detailed for any minor things I missed to have a super clean build.

Getting there, in an obsessive OCD way.

http://www.teamcrc.com/crc/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=16&mode=&order=0&thold=0 This is my main way of how I seal a chassis or any carbon part.
http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric-road/98346-how-perfect-carbon-fibre-edges.html VenomWorldOrder's tip on using a Q-tip is very important "-let it dry and then make a puddle of CA glue on the newspaper, wet the q tip in the puddle. be careful as the glue will dry quickly. i'd recommend letting it dry. when it drys it starts releasing a smoke DON'T BREATH IT, OR LET IT GET IN YOUR EYES!, then just dip it again in the CA. (i found that once the q tip has a layer of dried glue on it, the glue curing time takes longer, which is recommended because it gives you time to work with it."
But using bit of newspaper isn't good. A bit of a plastic bag will work much better. Plastic isn't really porous so it gives the glue a lot longer time to work with, also the glue won't soak into it.
And lastly http://www.competitionx.com/new-to-rc/rc-how-tos/prep-your-carbon-fiber-parts/ is also a good guide.
Anyway back to sanding more bits of carbon and most likely getting cancer.
Oh also, please don't use this as a step by step build. I'm too lazy to do that so I'm just going page by page.
