    Hello everybody, this is my first post. :cool:

    What is the best method of joining together two carbon fiber part halves? I am reproducing an instrument pod part using carbon fiber to construct the part. I have the two halves layed up in the molds and need to bond the two halves together before removing from the molds for finishing. The carbon fiber I used is black in color.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Why don't you make the pod in one piece? What kind of resin are you using? Is the seam going to show?
