This project is moving along nicely.
I have a few questions for you guys.
The best protection for the tank would be to use a Carbon/Kevlar/Fiberglass matrix. Going straight carbon would be to brittle, going straight Kevlar would be to flexable..the combo of all three is perfect.
We want a guard that will be ridged enough to protect against a rock, yet flexible enough not to shatter, we also need abrasion resistance.
We have a few options on both texture and appearance.
1. CF on the outside would give a black Carbon Fiber appearance,
2. Kevlar on the outside would be yellow
3.we can do a CF/Kevlar weave, you get a yellow/black weave pattern
We normally would do a gloss finish, however it occurred to me that a matte might hide owner provided scratches
let me know your thoughts.
Thanks
