Mold Progress

with No Comments

We got all the foam off the mold earlier this week and applied another surface coat to it. This was the first time we saw the mold, and although there are a couple small areas that will definitely need some fixing, overall it turned out pretty well.

Tonight we went to the Autobay to sand the mold after our 9:00 team meeting, and made a lot of progress. Tomorrow we will continue to sand in preparation for this weekend, when we will be taking the mold to a local industrial oven for a post-cure heat treatment. Road trip!

Also, our solar array shipped from Arizona and we are intently tracking it on FedEx’s website, it should be here very soon!
