Section: wings
Hours: 3

The top forward skin of the right wing does not match up evenly with the wing tip so today I added some glass to the wing tip to close the gap. First I sanded the wing tip in the area to be glassed to ensure a good bond. The area to be added is a thin long strip. Regular fiberglass cloth will not fit and flox would not be strong enough, so I used some unidirectional rovings pulled from fiberglass cloth. This will produce a strong high fiber content layup that should resist chipping or breaking.
