Just like sewing

If there's one thing I've learnt from working with Formula Student it's that doing engineering is just like sewing, and all the same rules apply.

Write everything down or you're bound to forget something. 

Draw out a full plan or you'll miss something off. 

And always measure twice, cut once!

Also, cutting carbon fibre to make car bodywork is remarkably similar to cutting a pattern. I even convinced my team mate to draw on the grain lines so you can alternate the weave!
