Another review of how to vacuum bag carbon fiber, fiberglass, or kevlar

A lot of people ask us how do you make carbon fiber parts.
Here is a great video showing the process to vacuum bagging carbon fiber hoods, trunks, or anything else. This process is also useful for other composite materials such as fiber glass, kevlar, or others. Vacuum bagging produces a light product, as the breather material soaks up excess resin. The result is not only a light part, but one that is stronger as well. This technique also prevents air bubbles from forming in the finished product. Most professional construction of carbon fiber components use a vacuum bagging method.
