I have a little spare time and was thinking of making some samurai (like from movie Last Samurai) armor out of composite materials. I have some carbon fiber/kevlar stuff, which I thought would make some kickass armor ( I have red/black, yellow/black and blue/black see sample below).
However I am not as experienced, talanted or skilled as many on TDH site.
I was thinking of starting with cardboard, then fiberglassing over it then using the carbonfiber/kevlar as the top layer. Then spray with clearcoat, then sand to class A finish (being careful not to damage the cloth.
alternative method would be to make cardboard plugs, then fiberglass molds then lay the carbonfiber/kevlar in them for a class A Finish.
any thoughts or suggestions?
