Fun with fiberglass (not...)

Sanding, filling, sanding, filling, sanding etc...   

Pretty happy at this point with the fairing.  I spent a LOT of time shaping it and fussing over little voids/pinholes.   I put a "final" coat of resin on surface today.  Hopefully this will sand out smoothly tomorrow and then get a couple of coats of filler primer.   I thought today would be that day of course but I needed to do more work.  Spent quite a bit of time making sure the edge along the top is perfectly level with the tape, and an equal amount of time feathering out the edges forward.

The "End" of a long journey: The big day finally arrives!

Today Vic Syracuse came down and conducted the airworthiness inspection, we completed the paperwork, and he flew the first flight with me. ...
