Love the look of this and the time you've taken to make it right. Would be interested in one as well as soon as you get them completed.

Sorry not yet. I'm currently on vacation and won't be back till Saturday. I still need to order the vacuum thingamabob that sucks the air out of the vacuum bag. I want to do a smaller test of vacuum bagging before doing it on. Large scale on the diffuser mold. We are making carbon fiber sunroof replacements for my friends e30 but we need to make a mold first. However next week when I get back I will start on making the center fins for the diffuser

Hang in there guys I'm not giving up on this. Have had some set backs but that's bound to happen on product development, especially with materials your not familiar with.

Ok guys sorry I haven't updated, got caught up in life. I just ordered the vacuum fittings and pump. I'm going to be making a mold of my friends e30 sunroof panel and we will be making a carbon version of it. I'm going to usenet as a test as it is much less material than the diffuser and much less. Lastly of something goes wrong. Don't worry I'm not giving up on it!!

Ok I just ordere more carbon fiber for the diffuser. The vacuum bag fitting an D vacuum generator came in today. It's simply another waiting game until the material comes in . This last month has sucked productivity wise, between vacation, work, and overall life getting in the way I haven't be enable to get anything done on it.

THis week I will be making the plug for the center fins. I can't do the mounting brackets until the piece is compete.

Great job and most appreciated to your hard work and time to making this piece. Been following since you posted on the other forum. Just never made an account to post. Really interested in this diffuser. Will you have a group buy once ready? In for GB.

well i have some good news and some bad news. bad news is i cant seem to get the carbon to dry correctly. the resin i used this time i have been using for a few years and never had a problem with it. layed it up and it still didnt dry stiff, for whatever reason.

the good news is that im still going to be making the diffuser, but out of fiberglass and painted black. however its a lot more work on the finihs end to prep it for paint so the price will go up.

it really annoys me to no end to say yeah i can do that and not be bale to. i will revist making carbon parts at another time but at this pointin time they will be made of fiberglass.

ok guys i apologize for not updating earlier, had a family emergency and had to go to atlanta over the weekend. ok so i got it laid up in fiberglass,we attempted to sandwich it between the plug and the mold but came to the conclusion its more trouble than its worth. when we popped the fiberglass out we noticed it was way to flimsy, so we will be adding more layers, no biggie, easy fix. good news is that it dried correctly and just simply need to add more layers of fiberglass when we lay it up. i will be getting some more work done on it this week. keep an eye out for an update. heres some pictures.

If these will end up working on a 2013 Hatch, please just take my money. Others are just too aggressive for me. I like the R205 the best, but its isn't quite aggressive enough. This is the perfect in between. Good work man, they are going to look amazing.
