as far as carbon goes there may be some in the future of this project, there may not be. I'm not revealing plans until there are pictures to show.
my point was you could have used 2-3 layers of carbon and saved considerable weight and gained much strength, glass is for corvettes J/K

Stand by what i said, looks good and clever and keep the progress coming
