In the process of gathering supplies and planning for a proper carbon build. Done one vaccum process board which turned out so so - good learning experience. Two questions for you experienced vaccum process builders out there:

1. Whats the general concensus about pump pressure using closed cell pvc type core (65-70) (Guess higher than the crap eps polystyrene I used, which buckled over 6 psi on a test I did beforehand)
2. Are you using perforated film aswell as peelply or just peelply?

Thanks, Geir

Use peelply, perf film and absorber. Don't over do the pressure.
