Section: elevator
Hours: 4

I sanded down the micro balloons I applied to the elevator yesterday and then added a strip of glass tape over the seam. I paint epoxy onto the parts and then carefully lay the fiberglass tape on the wetted area, butting the edge of the tape up to the tape line. I then dab extra resin with the brush on any area that hasn't fully wet out. Finally I cover the whole layup with strips of paper towel and press them into the fiberglass to absorb excess resin and ensure there are no air bubbles under the tape. This leaves a fairly dry layup and ensures there is not excess resin under the fiberglass.
