Well since I was spending the day at the estate sale. I brought the Zephyr.
My glass is sanded nice now. My glass came out great. Tail is stronger and I don't need much Bondo. The fillet is glass and Carbon now.
Tonight ill add Bondo in just a few divots. And she can be solartexed again.

With all the activity in the shop. My Zephyr hasn't it much love. On the new tail I want to make a better sweep into the tail. Time to break out the Bondo.

Before the Bondo sets I break out a knife and start shaping. Then sand off excess. Right side is getting there. Left has a couple of divots. One more coat.
Then I will let it dry. Good paintin weather in a comin in the Redneck spray booth
I want to get her movin forward in paint!!

Hey Rubio, I drilled a small hole in front of my fillet and squirted in a little gorilla glue, then turned it upside down. The glue stiffened up my fin where the bondo had cracked a little when it got squeezed too hard by a co-worker. I asked for a light layup fuse, it may not be an issue with yours.

Not much for me to show on this plane, but I did measure and mark the wing for when it gets glued to the fuse. also, installed the rails and the servos this afternoon. hopefully, it'll get some bondo and sanding on the fuse later tonight and tomorrow.
