Deflector Part 2

Just a quick one as I do not want to give away too much.  Finally managed to do up the fibre glass work with Chooped Mat and Roving.  The Roving is better suited to hold the surface on the edges as it is stronger.

 

Producing the top surface Needed to brace this securely on this working design.  I would not need to get a really solid grip on the production model as it will totally be fibre glass.  As it is now, wood is used as the main structural material.  I would only need this working design to make some sets of mould.  The finished product would therefore be much lighter and look nice.

Had a spin around Putrajaya.  About 45km distance.  First round registered 4.3 l/100km while the second registered 4.5l/100km.  Will keep doing test and maybe try to add more surface area on the bottom.  I am very happy as it is, there was little effort to try and clean it up.  Not even fillers and it still meets the target.  Probably I might get better results with the extension.
