03 Feb 08
The woven layer underneath the butterfly panel was a great success. The epoxy flowed really well, and, had we had a peel ply and tissue layer, would have required very little clean-up work. Hunt tested the resin on a laminate of several woven bamboo sheets and 1 bi-ply sheet, and it flowed under the layers of the weave acceptably well. We may use this as a core material on future parts. For the better part of the day, I worked on the driver's side window line and wheel well. I had to add about a gallon of body filler to the wheel well to build it out the right level. I hope to be able to skim the entire driver's side tomorrow. After work, Caroline, Aaron and I took a well deserved break and went to Ryan's for the Super Bowl.
