Yes Sir. I would like to have a lot of the fancy equipment they have. Would be nice to have an autoclave and a big freezer for prepreg.

Will you need to install the roll bar shield like TAFC for the wing to be mounted on the cage?

Thanks Boss. So I did some light filling just to make sure everything was straight before filling.

Wrapped the part in carbon gluing on wit super 77 as it won't interfere with the resin.

Once all 3 plies were completely wetted out and cured. After wards over coated with several coats of resin. It likes to run all over the place, but with out a tool to surface the part, you have to over wet and then sand smooth.

So after a fair bit of sanding, a good smooth surface to clear.
