Empennage - Fiberglass Tips

Task: Lots of sanding and filling today.

Today was very productive. I started by trimming the fiberglass to the edge of the fairings.

Then I removed the tape from the left elevator fairing and the result was the picture below. The flox setup nicely.

Here is the result after a lot of filing and sanding. There are some air pockets but they will be filled with he micro slurry.

I found a box to cut holes into so I could mount the fairings vertically.

Here is my first mix of micro. I thickened it up a bit more after taking this photo.

Here is what the slurry looks like after being poured. We'll see how it looks in the morning!
