Empennage Fairing Layup (Empennage)
2.1 Hours

I did some more trimming, including cutting off the edge around the leading edge of the horizontal stab.

Then, I put down a layer of clear packing tape (the epoxy shouldn't stick to it). I laid up some layers of fiberglass under the fairing on both sides of the leading edge and then cleco'd the fairing over them.

I then laid up a number of additional layers of fiberglass on top.

Finally, I put a bead of epoxy/flox mixture along the edge, particularly where it was a bit lifted off the skin along the vertical stab. Hopefully this will allow me to sand it out into a flush feathering--we shall see.
