I am not entirely sure if this is the correct name for it, but I have always referred to it as an angle grinder. Extremely convenient tool for this project.Looks like a long but productive weekend.
For your glue notches, is that a cutoff wheel?
As to the parts, are you st covering what you have, or are you going to make a mold and lay final material in that?
Sounds like you're going to cover what you have.
Yes, I am adding CF overtop of the printed parts, which will be blended into the existing bumper cover using the 3M adhesive as filler. That is why I have sanded down the bumper the areas as I have done, since the 3M adhesive is not intended to be used on paint, and additionally required the polyolefin adhesion promoter to bond to the pure PP+EPDM, even. For this project I have decided not to take the mold approach, however I have made considerations to do so for a future project, but I'd be getting a bit ahead of myself to expand on that now lol.
