Wing bagging notes

Don't use the carbon pieces containing the edge tape
Cut mylars so ends curl down when laying up
Use more accurate scale to measure epoxy
get cutting mat (about 2' x 6' or 3' by 6' marmolium).
Create a clean area for storing cut pieces of fabric
Make sure alcohol and paper towels are available before bagging and using epoxy
Larger mixing cups would be good
Make sure core beds align and the chord thicknesses match up perfectly
