Thanks again for all the support. I'd say it takes about 25 to 30 hours start to finish. There is allot of down time waiting for glue and paint to cure. The first one I built took about 45 hrs., but that was thinking and planning as I go. Now I have it all down, and have figured out better and faster ways to make parts with less materials.

Yes, I will have to show molding process, but it will have to wait until late spring as I have to do it outside in warm weather. The chemicals used in molding are super smelly, and will stink up the house for a week if I try it inside, and believe me I found out the hard way.

But....in the meantime here is a picture of mold. I restored an original top, then bolted it to a board. It was then covered in wax, then PVA(a synthetic mold release). The next step was to cover everything with a super thick coat of tooling gel coat. After the gel coat cures, it is covered with fiberglass and resin. When cured, the fiberglass is pulled from the original part, and I am left with a perfect negative of top. The process is repeated on the inside of the mold to form a new fiberglass top. In the picture you can see the left-over film from the PVA. This was left on after a part that failed.
