Default Carbon Flox

This is probably a bad practice, but it works. I had a couple divots on the carbon fiber plenum flanges. They needed additional material so the screws wouldn't bend and crack the baffles. I use flox often for tiny fixes like this so I took a scrap piece of carbon fiber and chopped it up with the rotary cutter. Just run back and forth till it turns into fluffy flox. Mix into epoxy just like flox. Matching repair and it's hard as nails.
