Can Anyone Help Me Plz!

Recommended Posts

Ok all,

 

I am currently working on the Knight Rider mod and I had a question.

 

I have created a mock up of the front grill of K.I.T.T. out of foam.. It is layered 1" at a time, and glued together with standard elmers glue.

 

Now I have read several resources that state you need to seal your styrofoam before you start using your solvent on it, but they never say what you are supposed to use.

 

I was looking for anything that I could spray on the foam to seal it or harden it..

 

I am going to fiberglass over it so it will ned to uphold to that.

 

Any links or info would be greatly appriciated..

 

 

Thanks

I know exactally what you are talking about, bu I also lack the name of the product. Funny thing is that everytime I go into a auto body shop and ask about some styrofoam hardening spray they all say the same thing.

"I know what your talking about buddy, but I don't know where you get soem around here... Try walmart."

 

Here are some links to the styrofoam mock up. It has made progress since these pics, and I will try to get new ones taken and up this week.

Thats the best I can do right now. Like I said, I will get the new pics taken and posted this week.

instead of going to an auto parts store go to a hobby store or art store or even try a good lumber yard

Ya,

 

Ima try Hobby Lobby tonight. Hope they know, cuz that is the only Big hobby store we got around here. :(

 

and I hate to order somethign so mundane online. <_<

 

I have finished it and went ahead and covered it with ducktape for now. It was really fragile, and I din't want to break it. I will probably use an epoxy over the top of it.

 

Oh well, tnite is D-day.. doing the fiberglass work when I get off tongith if all goes well.

you could always use a fiber glass resin and thin sand it to prefection just wrap it in tweed and add the fiber glass resin(spelling) or you could use bondo i think bondo would work pretty good for that and its cheap ;)
