how do i build a fibreglass skateboard

 Hi im new here

How do i build a fibreglass skateboard, im puzzled because they are just one peice. Are they injection moulded, or made in 2 halves and glued together, i understand you can place some plywood in the core to stiffen it. Also how is it coloured, if i want to make a blue one, is the first layer of fibreglass blue, or is it painted with an airbrush on completion, what sort of paint would be used and tough enough

Many Thank - K

the blue color or what ever colour you chose is called gelcoat.. it is sprayed into a mould of whatever you are making then the fiber glass is layed out over it

www.instructables.com/id/Composite-sandwich-skateboard/ or just look up "surfboard" in the search box.  Good luck.
