Mold Making Process
How Your New 1949 Mercury Replica is Created
Your New 1949 Mercury Replica is created using the best Fiberglass Chemicals available from Composites One LLC. Your new Replica is Hand Laid 3 Layers thick in 2 oz Fiberglass Chop Matt or approximatly 3/16 inch in thickness. The molds have been cleaned, sealed, and Partal Number 2 Paste applied. Then the Partal Number 10 Film is applied. This replaces PMR which can allow damages to the mold and that would effect the end quality of your Replica. The next step is applying the Gel Coat, we use White Gel Coat standard approximatly 14 mil in thickness on every part. This allows more sanding with out cutting into the Resin and Matt.
All hard radius edges are reinforced using RMP (Radius Marine Putty) to reinforce the Body Structure in those areas and virtually eliminate all hidden Air Pockets. The final process is the Hand Laid Fiberglass Matt which is applied in 3 individual even layers, each layer is rolled to remove virtually all Air Pockets. Our goal is to deliver the Best 1949 Mercury Replica ever introduced to the Public Market in the world.
