    if everything works out, they will be in production. just not "mass" :D

    I got both sides layed up, got some finishing to do then maybe a mold.
    yes, they are huge now, not shaped to be angry, sleepy, stoned, etc..

    Nice, I'm trying to learn how to work with carbon fiber and just recently thought this could make a good starting project for me. Can't wait to see how yours come out.

    ok, 1 side is just about ready for molding..

    question...should I leave them like this or cut out a final shape?
    the top is all set , would just have to cut the bottom to shape.
    if I leave it people can make whatever lids they want (angry,etc..)

    I'd say leave it so people can do whatever they want. I think that's a good idea. :thumbsup:
