What about using a large resalable container like a big Tupperware. Cut a hole in it to except a shop vac attachment which you epoxy to the box. Hook up the shop vac and you have a vacuum chamber.Not a vacuum FORM, a CHAMBER!
It would be a sealable Chamber. A tank to pull a vacuum in. After mixing the mold silicon you put it in the chamber, pull a vacuum on it to remove bubbles before making the mold and it becomes very smooth, no pits in the cast part.
What I have done is the easy way, but has to be repaired a bit because of the bubbles in the mold.
I'm filling and sanding. Had a big lesion on the tail pipe so I used Miliput to repair, that is out of reach and will be sanded down before priming and painting. It's going well!
I thought that belonged to the museum!It's too big for my loungeroom.
I have no idea how one can collect these things to display at home. I can't decide if it's money well spent or not. This one would sell new for 750+ US! I don't have that kind of liquid assets!
