13 Jan 08
Hunt and I put another layer of fabmat on the butterfly panels this morning. We then had to run to Home Depot for a gallon of fiberglass resin to mix in with our primary resin. After lunch and ample resin-curing time, we laid up a layer of chopped strand mat and a layer of boat cloth onto each butterfly panel. Once we finished that, I went off and found a box of tessellated, end-grain balsa that we are going to look at using to stiffen up the mold. We have finished most of the fiberglass work on the butterfly panel molds, so we feel pretty good about today.
