Re: wires & tabs

Unless it is really warm (over 85 Fahrenheit) I would say leave them at least 24 hours. I pulled mine after one night (~16 hours) and my panels separated a bit so I had to retie them. That was after trying it with just tape, which also didn't work. What I did instead of sanding was make the tabs really small and then when I finished the fillet I just ran a thin layer over the top of the tabs to get a chemical bond as well as physical. If you do the tape quickly it won't matter either way.
Growing old is inevitible, growing up is optional. Live well play hard.
