  • If you’re looking to make a very strong joint use carbon fiber. Buy a small strip of 1″ wide tape, maybe a couple feet, mix your epoxy into your mixing cup. Then take a strand of carbon from the tape, cut very small pieces (1/32 or so) into your epoxy mixture and mix. Use as much as you think you will need then use it to strengthen your joint (firewall) or use it as a fillet in a high stress area. This mixture will be virtually unbreakable.
