    Re: Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser for the Sedan. Group Buy Inside!

    I did stop by yesterday and took a couple pics of the mold in progress for everyone to see. Sadly, I've tied up since today and haven't had a chance to post them. But here we go!




    So there's Jasons bumper in all it's glory being molded upon! I also did see the strake mock-ups that were cut but didn't take a snap shot of those. They will soon be digitized and the mold will be machined out from a block of aluminum. That should make for some cool pictures!

    For reference, my line drawing on the first page is pretty much exactly how it will turn out.

    Stay Thirsty My Friends.

    Mold separated from Bumper. Still needs to be polished, and strakes need to be made... Making good progress here! Mold turned out great and Jasons got his bumper back on his baby!

    Re: *THEY WILL BE MADE!!!Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser for the Sedan. Group Buy Ins

    The mill has been balanced and is ready to rock - we needed the mill to machine out the diffuser strake molds.



    Strake mold stage 1



    What the heck? Yeah it looks confusing... How on earth does that resemble 4 strakes? Well, the diamond shaped edge are actually the sections the sides that will mend to the profile of the diffuser. In the below picture, I illustrated in red the shape of each strake.... The reason there are 4 corners is so he can do 4 at once (4 per diffuser) and 2 are a different shape from the other 2. This pic should clarify the idea a bit



    A couple shots of the mold polished and baby smooth ready for making a prototype!




    The table where magic happens!



    Detail of the weave



    Extremely lightweight, thin and very strong! Top quality carbon work right here folks! Weighs about what dry carbon would... Introducing the vacuum impregnated carbon fiber! Shown here is a roof.



    And the quality in close detail. Expect the diffusers finish to be identical!



    ---

    We expect our composites guy to start making the first prototype in roughly 1 week! After which we will let it cure, test fit and proceed from there! Thank you again everyone for being a part of this unique project! Your WRXs will soon be the envy of many, as others will need to pay a deep premium over your cost to own one of these!

    Prototype model is in the mold and being vacuum infused. We should have some eye candy by the end of the week or early next week.

    Remember this picture? Yeah... it's when the mill was having issues.



    Now, this is more like it





    Mocked up! I'm digging it.

    Re: Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser for the 08-10 Sedan - GB - Prototype on Page 29!!!

    An Update!

    Strake mold is polished to perfection and ready to be used as... well... a mold. Strakes are planned to be 6 layers of carbon thick... which means ultra thin and razor-like! It's going to look great... We may bump it up to 8 layers, we will determine that after we make the first batch of strakes!

    Hoping to see a set of strakes produced before the weekend and possibly a FINAL version of our prototype before the end of 2 weeks. Once that's completed and test fitted, then official production begins! Can't wait to get these in your hands!

    Enjoy these mirror-polished shots taken with my crappy iphone camera. Oh, and for those who found it confusing at first, look at the highly polished 4 sections? Those are the shapes of the strakes. Hopefully, that helps clarify. If not, you'll see in the next step how it all works out

    Re: Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser for the 08-10 Sedan - GB - Prototype on Page 29!!!

    Quick update folks.

    A set of strakes were completed, but they didn't turn out as well as expected. They weren't made correctly at the base and weren't trimmed right, hence they weren't a good fit during test fitting. But FEAR NOT!!!! It's a new mold and a first run, so adjustments will be made to ensure the final product looks and fit great. Usually companies won't show this 'failed' phase of production to avoid panic or hesitation, but since everyone has been waiting so long, we'd at least like to show you that things are being worked on. Anyway, we decided to do 8 layers of pure carbon on each strake and I am absolutely happy with the thickness and overall shape. Another set will be made within a week and should be a proper fit. Once they are bonded to our prototype its final test fitment then full slated production

    Some pictures (only 3 of the 4 strakes shown in the pictures. One was out to be tested for laser cutting)



    Mock up of 3 out of 4 strakes lined up roughly on diffuser.



    Failed fitment.
