dust Posted September 17, 2003 Share Posted September 17, 2003 Well, we have been buying the ugliest peel ply at local fabric stores, we have had zebra, dye bled into sides of planes, orange, pink, white etc. etc. and we cut the price over wicks and aircraft buy allot. Recently we were laying up the second turtle deck outside (in the basement) and when we were wetting out the peel ply it wouldn't wet out. We kept mixing and spreading and squeegying over and over again. I automatically count many things that I do and I count the pumps of epoxy that I use. Ok i finally said enough after we pumped enough on the "peel ply" to wet out both layers of glass underneath. The next week the "peel ply" wouldn't peel off, it took 9 man hours to get it cleened off and maybe one day i will weigh the two turtle decks to see how much weight we added. so now we will test all new batches or most probably stop saving money and buy from ac or wicks. You have never built long enough to stop making mistakes ENJOY the build, even the mistakes Quote maker wood dust and shavings - foam and fiberglass dust and one day a cozy will pop out, enjoying the build i can be reached at http://www.canardcommunity.com/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
