I have doing research on composite materials such as carbon fiber composite and Kevlar composite, and decided I was going to make a new iBook lid out of carbon fiber (for the great mod challenge), but it has drawbacks, one crack and it's useless, and really expensive. I decided to try to use nylon instead of Carbon fiber and make my own composite material I settled on nylon, it should be more flexible than carbon fiber and much cheaper. After a trip to lowes I had epoxy resin and hardener, then to walmart for nylon. I tried to create a new case for my portable hard drive and failed the first time, it's sides were wrinkled and it was ugly, probably because I was not prepared, I'd never done anything like this before. My messed up piece seemed pretty flexible, so I made a new case with more layers of nylon, its drying now. I'll post pics of it tomorrow.
