Ya. It had been a while. I found myself triple checking getting ready to lay them up. Never fails, I always forget at least one minor detail and find myself scrambling during the layup. I’m making a list for the next set. Lol

Took another set out. I’m using some new paint templates on these. Layed up some fiberglass and cut out a more simple design. I get cleaner lines and no overspray.
This set got stuck. I tried to gingerly remove it, however it fought back. It suffered a couple minor delam spots from trying to remove it from the mold. Weight is good. 110g with a heavier fabric than the last set.
Molds are being prepped again. I need a do over. And I get to practice with my new paint templates again.
