3M has very generously donated several boxes worth of crucial supplies to build our solar car, including all the sandpaper and electrical tape we need, various types of panel adhesives, and the most important supplies of all: duct tape and zip ties!

The body team is especially grateful for the abrasive paper. 3M sent us as much sand paper as we need in grits ranging along a continuous spectrum from very a large grit to a very fine grit. We will hopefully be receiving our molds from Demmer by the end of April, so the abrasive paper from 3M will be used extensively to make our molds, and thus the outer surface of our final body, as smooth as possible.

Here are the unopened shipped boxes below:

And here are the boxes after we opened them and categorized everything in the shipment.


Thank you 3M!!!
