Default Making new door pods with pics.. Fiberglass = :)

Well here we go..

new door pods are being made, since im 6'6" I need all the room I got on the floor so no way I could do kicks.

Now the stock pods were ok but they shot at my ankles. So new pods were formed and as you can see the mids will now shoot out and upwards.

Now let me tell you trying to aim these suckers while holding them and marking was a major chore to say the least but the imagining is much better.

I will be stretching the fleece today and resin will be thrown down wednesday or thursday. Stay tuned..

Some pics here on my site..

Standard fleece from Jo Ann Fabrics.. Fleece is stretchy but you got to do alot of the stretching if that makes sense.. its not super thick but not super thin either.

If its to thick it will take alot of resin for it to soak in, so ya need a inbetween fleece.
