Glassing wing bottoms

With the micro starting to get tacky, the final fill and fair of gaps and transitions was done with a thick mixture of resin+cabosil (cabo).  A length of triax was cut and draped over the wing, and smoothed out by hand.  Resin was squeegeed and worked into the glass to wet it out completely.  Peel ply and weights were used in select places to keep the surface flat.  The trailing edge glass needed to be periodically forced into a sharp edge by stippling with a brush.
