Making the wheel spat moulds

The wheel spat plugs fitted to the main plug.

First we cut polystyrene foam to the right shape.

After glassing, filling and lots of sanding we spray the final coat of Duratec before final sanding, cutting, polishing and waxing.

Fitting flanges around ther plugs - so the 
mould can be split in two.

The rear wheel spat plug - ready to make the mould.

Making the moulds - like the main mould - but in two halves.


Releasing the moulds from the plugs.
