Pavel used the carbon fibre skinning process to give his Skate Deck this amazing carbon fibre finish and add strength.
The skeleton board was prepared before Pavel applied the XCR Black Epoxy Basecoat and allowed this to cure to the tacky B-stage - before moving on to the next step which was to carefully lay the carbon fibre fabric over the base board and leave it to cure.
Next Pavel applied the first coat of XCR Coating Resin to seal the fibres of the fabric and once cured he trimmed the sides to remove excess fabric and keyed and cleaned the surface ready for the next coat.
The final stage of the project was to apply layers of coating resin to build up to the high gloss finish you see in the photographs. Pavel finished the piece by removing any resin drips with wet and dry abrasive paper and polishing up to a high shine with NW1 polishing compound.
