Re: XF20

Yep, it was good talking to you Doc. Won't be quite as much fairing as your build. This one is a little skinnier. Cut it down to 6 ft. wide to be able to get it through the gate. I forgot how to post pics.

XF20

My buddy and I finally started on it. We have it upside down and sanded to fair the bottom. I can't remember if we need to roll a coat of epoxy on before I start to lay down fairing or not. If so do I let it dry before fairing. Thanks, Don

Re: 2014 Texas Builder's Meet July 25-27 @ POC
