I use the same carbon I use in the Arrows D tube at 0/90 top and bottom. then a 1.4 oz. finish cloth.

Dave,
Just to clarify this early point about the plug layup method. Do you simply brush the foam cores with epoxy, lay on the glass and thoroughly wet out? Then when cured sufficiently and the LE & TE sanded, prime and fill/sand to surface it up?
I can understand what you mean when you say vac bagging causes some waviness etc.
I like the sound of this. I will do my next wing plugs that way I think.

Good stuff Dave, keep it coming.

Jim.
