    RE: 1/2oz Carbon fiber mat

    Sonny,
    I'm using some right now. I got it from cst, asp also has it. From what I've found it comes in two weights .5oz. and .2 oz. per yard the .5oz. stuff seems to be about .005!QUOT! thick (kind of hard to measure because of compression. I'm primarily using it sandwiched between parts to add stiffness. It's amazing what the difference is. I tried using it like glass to reinforce an external seam, it worked o.k. but the stuff fuzzes like you would not believe. I am not using bagging so that might help the final appearance.
    The older I get... The better I was...
