That sounds good, although this thread is getting ridiculously long, which can make it tough if you are using the search feature to hunt for specific information.

Tom, quick question: Are you still using interior glass on the latest wings? I saw you didn't do it on one wing in the videos. Just looking for methods to reduce weight as much as possible!

All wings have had glass on the inside of the skin. A couple early ones had glass mat, but I couldn't get them light enough, so most have .5-.7 bias balanced cloth.

I have had a couple of requests for pictures of the "slicinator" and I'll start a separate thread about that.

Tom,

I tried to watch some of your videos, but haven't figured something out on the website; yet.

When doing D-box layups, are you just laying the cf over the disser?

Thanks,

Gary

D-box layups, the carbon forward piece goes in the mold and is wet out, then the doublers at the root and tip, then the disser overlaps those doublers and a small bit of the d-box where the spar goes. The spar is then added inside the skin. I know you want the spar on the very outside, but I'm only giving up about .010" because the spread tow is so thin.

Well thank you for your offer, but I have chosen to build all of my parts with peanut butter.
