Question for the fiberglass experts
I am working on a layup where the top layer will be carbon fiber. As long as I don't screw it up I would like to show the CF by sanding and adding a clearcoat to the finished part.
Is it a good idea to still use peel-ply on top of the layup? I figured the peel ply could soak up some excess resin and leave a more even finish, but it may be a pain to sand it smooth enough to cleacoat.
Also, the part is mostly flat can I use one large piece of peel-ply, or should I stick to strips. The strips will probably leave a seam mark, but one large piece may be difficult to remove.
Maybe I'll build a composite plane one of these days. I don't know what I am doing, but having a lot of fun doing it...haha
