Ribs on the IP


Recommended Posts

I have a question regarding the ribs on the instrument panel.

The BID that goes on the "hole"-side of the rib - where does it stop? Do I wrap it on the aft side (I don't think so), do I end it flush with the aft side?


Could anyone please point me to the place where making BID-tapes are explained?

I raised my IP off the table with several blocks, then trimmed the BID flush with the aft face of the IP once cured. One forward edge of the H-100 has a 1/4" radius. The picture shows weights (boards) holding the BID in contact at the 'square' edge.


The finished glassed intersection of the ribs and the lower electrical channel doesn't look nice.


The 'lip' on the electrical channels is a chore.


Lay two strips of BID on a piece of plastic. Dribble epoxy on the strips and stipple. Cover with another strip of plastic and squeege (not too hard). Use a metal meter stick and sharp knife to trim a straight line.
