    I believe each of these is properly called a "buck". The tooling mould is created from these, and fiberglass parts are laid-up in the mould. That way, moulds can be reproduced when they wear out.

    Not to mention, our little Corvette becomes increasingly epic; spawn of Harley Earl plus intense Belgian named Duntov. 2017 GS, $66k, 1.20G skid pad, 0-100MPH 8.5 seconds, and ceramic carbon brakes the envy of BMW.
    No assembly required.
