Default Calling all composite repair men/women

Looks like these guys have a pretty neat setup. Pretty funny that most members just want to own a Autoclave and here these guys have a mobile one!

Ah, my friend Claudio. He is a character, but a very friendly and nice person.

He even airshipped the whole lot to Dubai for a race there.

The more carbon parts you see flying around on the track, the happier he is...

I visited him yesterday, he was in the neighbourhood. He now has paint on the trailer. Looks good.

The trailer holds an autoclave (110cm dia x 2 meter depth), hotbonder, large oven (120C), vacuum, compressor, 220v, 110v, 12v, roll rack, kitchen, fridge, and much more. The car in front of it is half warehouse, half living area, even with a shower, beds, etc.

This weekend in Silverstone, next weekend Zandvoort.

That's amazing he fits all that equipment into that amount of space. It would be really cool to hang out with him one day at the track just to see all that goes on.
