some calculation

Obviously if someone glass the wings and have direct experience feedback will be sure bettere of what I'm going to write hereafter ( and please share with us this experience if someone tried).

Alpina wings ( in 3.8 m configuartion, without extension) have surface of 65 sq dm. Surface to be covered is double ( of course).
Assuming that quantity of epoxy resin required will be more or less the weight of glass used.
using 49 g/sq m I assume a final weight rise of 130 g more or less.

Do you agree?

Wing loading may change from 57 to 59 g/sq dm. If my calculation is good ( or at least plausible) glassing should not lead to a so much critical situation?

Just my wondering
