this shop is how clean and organized it always is.
||The Diabolic 6.0 body mold is being cleaned with an air gun. The black spots are where new gel coat was recently added to recondition our molds. We maintain our molds so we can produce the same qulaity consistantly for our customers.||Molds are moved into the
gel coat booth. This is the first step in the production process
|The gel coat is hand painted in
hard to spray areas.
||Here is a close up of the hand painted gel coat area. The black spots are where new, tooling gel coat was recently added to recondition our molds.||Here you can see the gel coat is sprayed in
large areas. Touch up is done all throughout the process, with
great attention to detail.

takes approximately one hour to spray the gel coat. It will sit in
the mold for another hour or so while it sets up, before fiberglass lay
up can begin.

||Fiberglass mat is cut, brushed with resin and used to reinforce the bumpers, rocker panels and throughout most of the body.||The first piece of
fiberglass mat is put in place.
|Here is a shot of the second piece of fiberglass that mat has
been applied. Both are being brushed and rolled to remove air bubbles.
||A roller and brush is constantly
used to remove air bubbles and create as uniform a thickness to the body
||A chop gun is used to lay up only large, flat areas. Lighter fiberglass spots is where chop was sprayed. This will be rolled and brushed until it has the same consistency of the fiberglass mat!||A brush is used to make sure
fiberglass is in every crease and corner -- and air bubbles are not!
There is a lot of care and attention to detail given throughout the process of making one of our kits.
|Can you tell where it was chopped and where it was hand laid? Constant brushing and rolling make the two methods blend together to form a fantastic, high quality, uniform body.||Three fiberglass craftsmen have been
working for almost 4 hours -- and they're only half way finished!
It takes time, skill and patience to make a great product.
||This is why the quality of our Diabolic 6.0 is
as high as it is -- three fiberglass craftsmen constantly
working to get out any imperfections!
||Before they begin working on the
other side of the body they rough up the fiberglass in the middle so a
good bond is formed between them.
|While she works out air bubbles, another craftsman is cutting and wetting up fiberglass mat and a third is trimming edges.||Look at the trimmed edges. Even the scoop on the hood is pre-cut. The end result is less work for you.||Headlights, front marker lights, fog lights and front trunk are all trimmed for you while the body is being laid up.||All the fiberglass has now been laid
up. There is still some trimming to be done around the taillights.
process of laying up the body took a total of 9 hours with three people
constantly working! And this was just the body! There are
still all the smaller, misc. pieces that need to be laid up -- the
doors, hood, trunk, wing, dashboard, instrument hood, center console and
interior door panels! After they are laid up, they still have to
be taken out of the molds! To get the body out of the molds, the
molds must be unbolted and removed, piece by piece, until the body can
be pulled out. The process of removing the parts from the molds takes
another couple of hours. They also look for air bubbles and
correct any that are found! We figure it takes approximately 45
man hours to make each complete kit, but it's worth it because the
quality is there -- and you, as a replicar builder will apperciate the attention
to detail of the fiberglass professionals making it for you.
