CBarber Posted August 26, 2008 Share Posted August 26, 2008 Ok, I admit it, when it comes to Trek, my geek level goes straight to 10 AND when you are kinda putting off the inevitable, in this case to start removing the Jeffco from my inner stake skins, you come up with all sort of silly things to distract you. Yesterday I straightened up the hangar and today I started to look way down the road and add my Trek touches to my Velocity. Submitted for your consideration. Also, here are some photos of me sanding/grinding etc to remove the naughty Jeffco from my stake inner walls. You will note that I choose to cut out the inner skins in a couple of the compartment and in others, generally where I had more working room I ground out most of the Jeffco. This is still a work in progress as there is still quite a bit of residual Jeffco to remove. Also, this is NOT an exact process and I have hit blue foam a few times. I have spoken extensivily with Velocity, Inc and they are ok with my plan to lay down new glass over the cut out sections and say it is ok to lay new glass over the ground down areas kinda making a inner bladder. The new glass should adhear to the sanded older glass. Where Jeffco failed, which was most prevelant on the top right strake near the front all this upper glass has been removed. I used a Dremel with a RotorZip cutting bit to remove the inner glass. This alowed me to cut a very precise line in very restrictive areas. Flame suit on...
