I decided to follow the group and ordered some graphite powder from Jamestown Distributors. Did you put the graphite into the resin at the first application (fabric wet-out) or just the fill coats? Now many coats have graphite? This morning, I put a layer of Zynole (polyester fabric) on the inside surface of one half of the case. So far, I have used only neat resin. As soon as the graphite arrives, I will post some pics. Your pictures are a huge help. Keep posting!
