I just bumped into this thread. I dabble in composites in my garage every day.
About 90 % of the C/F stuff I do gets painted. I did make a few parts for my DR but my specialty is race cars

I wanted a low fender for the DR so I modified an old Bultaco Pursang fender, made molds and did it with a few plies of C/F and Kevlar



also made case guards with 15 plies Kevlar and 1 ply 8 harness on the outside




I designed, built the mold and C/F VARTM this tail over the summer



I recomend the next can of wax you buy for what you are doing Meguiars #8 mold release
I have many Vacuum pumps, a good starter for the money is one from Harbor Freight http://www.harborfreight.com/catalog...esult?q=vacuum it's .
ebay is a source also
also a good source for supplies http://www.aircraftspruce.com/menus/cm/index.html
I buy all my Epoxy resin from PTM&W (after searching the best resin systems for many years)
I've been doing race cars for 12 years after leaving the airlines as a composite tech for 25 years
I made spare parts and repaired this car since new untill retirement. went with the team for years including the 24 LeMans
