    Yeah, the change in pitch from the pump is a good sign. Used to listen for that with the vacuum fixtures for the mill.
    I think Iím gonna hit the hardware store and give the Flex Seal a shot.

    Piece of hose up to your ear would probably help identify the location.

    We use the blue speed tape everywhere for bagging carbon fiber. Hard to find something that sticks to teflon film.

    A can of Flex Seal has been procured but a desert ride has popped up and that shall thwart my efforts for a bit.

    Tube in the ear... could pull one off the stethoscope I have. Already thought about making a little reverse megaphone that I can replace the sensor part with.

    Stepped away from the bagging for a minute. Three days of chasing invisible yet hearable (sort of) hisses and leaks is taking its toll. I think I've almost got it now, though.

    I got to the point on Monday night that I'd said screw it and was going to go ahead and infuse and look for any bubbles and fix as it's infusing but the epoxy had gelled up and wasn't going to work. WTF? It's a brand new just opened can. Had to call Fibreglast and ask what was up with a new gallon of resin being stiff and was told "it's cold, just warm it up". A bucket or four of soaking the can in hot water and waddya know, it's clear, has low viscosity and looks like it's supposed to work now.

    So I decided to do a little cosmetic carbon and cover the two heat shields that I've done for the exhaust.

    First, cover them in carbon. Two layers held in place with Super77 adhesive:









    Then wet them up with polyester resin and let them sit for a few hours. I purposely left them "raw" and didn't bag them for a smooth finish. It matches the shields that I made for the header section of the exhaust.



    Once they were dry I trimmed the edges and the back sides of them, that is next to the exhaust, got some of the aluminized fiberglass heat shielding installed (box says the stuff's good to 1,750F (954C) along with the sealing tape that's recommended:







    They turned out looking pretty darned sweet (or at least I'm happy with the results):







    Then they got put in their new homes and I think they're happy there.










    Gonna tackle the bagging project again today. Hopefully I'll be mixing resin.

    What product is the heat shielding?

    I would kill to drill and tap tubes to mount fasteners. The moist, wet, humid stuff here tends to find its way in, though. Everything got a tab on my build.
