Hey,

It´s looking very good!

I used the spray paint after I saw you doing!

It helped a lot, but the fairing drank some paint and the points where the fairing board just touch it stayed colored.

Regards,

Carlos Sotelo
I'm happy it is working for you. Thank for the compliment too!

I was able to get a few hours in after lunch today. I hope I'm not boring y'all with sanding pictures but that's all I'm doing now. Fill,sand,repeat. Anyway I got the first eight feet on the side sanded with 80 grit paper. I'm glad I decided to fill and fair this again. Between the Quick Fair and the blue paint I can clearly see the lows.

I also sanded the entire bottom half down with 120 grit. I still have work to do here also.

The guide coat powder came in today but I did not get to use it yet.

I thought I posted this yesterday but I guess I forgot to submit it.
I spent all of yesterday sanding, First caught up this side panel with 80 grit, then sanded the whole panel with 120 grit.
I was wore out.

Image

Then my brother wanted to show me the way he would fill so I cut him loose!
He seems to think I'm putting it on a bit thin, I don't know. This was another 30 grams.

Image

First thing today I sanded the second fill out. It looks pretty good. I'm going to spend time with a bright light and do fill work today.

Image

I'm going to start with this corner transition, Tired of looking at it. I built a dam from G10 and peel ply and got it in place.
I plan to round this but I think this is the easiest way to fill it.

Thanks for the support Jeff! You know I like posting here. The support from the forum is amazing! 8) :D 8)

Ok, I just finished the second fill of Quick Fair. I tried to only apply it to the low spots.
The big picture after another 150 grams.

That's most likely all for today. Oldest daughter is meeting me for lunch then I have to help her get her submission ready for Teen Talent.
She entered photography and it has to be turned in tonight. It has to be printed and in a frame so we have to go get that done.

Looking good Eric. While fairing is a PITA what you get out of it is what you put in to it. The more the better. :D

Thank You too Tom. It is, just so much I can get done in a day. Hey on a Very positive note, After sanding all day yesterday I did not have any rotator cuff pain. Maybe the worst of that is behind me. :wink:
