Best to make a female mold and lay it up that way.

If you use the exhisting part as a male mold and build up from there you will end up with a lrger piece than original and the finish will more than likely be less than ideal.

Make sure your plug is near perfect and take your time making the mold. That is the best way to insure you make a quality reproduction.

FYI resins are a bit different for CF and you should read up on things before tackling anything too complex.

Check this site out if you have not done so already. They have a lot of info but watch out for the pricing, they are a bit high on most items.
