Quality Check

Posted by Matt Croce on Mar 27, 2005

Just got done "tabbing" my CH-16.

This is the first time I've done this, and except for the scarf joints, the only fiberglass work I've done before was on my VW bug in college.

So, how does it look? I'd like some critiques, because I don't have anything to compare to. I screwed up by not masking off the bulkheads, I knowm but I cleaned up the messes the best I could; I'm hoping that with a little sanding, once I epoxy the interior, it won't be noticeable.

I plan on pulling the wires prior to finishing the fillets. A while back someone mentioned filling the holes left by the wires with toothpicks dipped in epoxy. I know this is not necessary, but has anyone done it, and does it hide the holes any better than just filling them with epoxy?

Thanks, Matt
