Outer Panel - continued

Once the Double - D sheeting... ... and tapered lower spar cap are set, the lower .007 X .25 carbon fiber can be tacked down. No need to glue it down it's entire length, yet. As you add the ribs and 1/16 shear webs, you'll be using thin CA and it will run under it as you go. That will save a gram or two, at least. The spar cap that you tapered may be a touch wide for the ribs. Wood thicknesses can also vary. Make sure the ribs fit, by removing material from the front and top of the spar slot if necessary... do NOT notch the spar...
