Taping Floor to Fuse.

Recommended Posts

If you've been watching my webcam, you'll know that I've attached the bottom to the fuse.

 

I using the three step process:

Glass floor & let cure,

Flox Floor to Fuse & cure,

then do all the tapes.

 

I measured up all the tapes to attached the floor to the fuse.

It's something like 45 feet!

 

I'm now done with my third evening and still have to have the back area to do. In those three evenings, I've probably spent 5-6 hours and probably still have about 4 to go. I know it's a lot of tapes, but 10 hours for this task strikes me as excessive. Maybe I'm slow or overly careful.

 

 

I'm curious how long it took everyone to tape the floor to the fuse?

Drew:

 

It took me 4-5 hours to tape the fuselage bottom to all the bulkheads. I layed out a sheet of tin foil 36" long and then marked off 2 " lines I then layed out 2 8" wide pieces of bid and wet them out. Then used the Dritz scissors to cut down the 2" lines that I had made I think I had to do this about 3 time if my memory is correct. Gives you really nice tapes to install. You can pre bend the tin foil with the glass on it and just push it into the corners. The hardest part is getting the tin foil off the glass with the latex gloves on. Build on STeve

yep, pretty much the same style.

 

I'm thinking that my time is longer because I spread it out to multiple sessions. Breaking the workflow and cleanups probably account for some. Plus I just WAG the time.

 

I'll just about break 100 hours in this chapter. That longer than most builders. But I guess as long as your working and making progress....

I wet out a section of BID on a piece of poly, Laid another piece of poly over it an then cut it with a pizza wheel cutter to the 3 inch width.

Peel and stick.

 

Better than the 'herding cats' approach I was using before. :D
