    I mix in 6 gram increments, 5 resin, 1 hardener, often 2 grams of hardener are added, still end up throwing a lot away. Never had a problem, of course my stuff isn't going to outer space. A gallon last a long time, the resin crystallized in the cool basement. Set the gallon container in front space two weeks ago.

    that's what I do too Tony, about 10g of resin and 2g of hardener is as small as I'll go. it's enough to know it's being mixed well and minimizes waste, can always mix more for larger jobs.

    There was a guy on YouTube, B1Bob, that did tons of his own molding to build turbine jets, and he made a filler out of cotton flock and resin. Evidently it's really cheap. :)

    Below pic shows how to make a break in the panels. This point is where the straignt section of the fuse sides start the taper. I run it through the table saw about 3/4 of the way through the panel.

    Bend the panel back and pack with epoxy mashed potatoes. Then use a squeegee to remove excess epoxy.


    Paint on some non-thickened epoxy and add your cloth. Using 2 oz cloth here. Will be adding a second layer when I add the former in after it dries. Also squeegee’d off excess epoxy from cloth.


    Top view of the fuse break.


    Firewall had mashed potatoes placed in edge and placed. Prior to placing, painted on some non-thickened epoxy on the fuse sides to help with bonding.


    Another view of jigging and layup. Also added a temporary former at the tail.

    Well.... I picked a bad day to quit drinking

    Woke up this morning with that oh crap moment. Didn’t recall double checking the direction of the firewall installation. Yep, 50-50 chance of getting it right and I failed... :( :msn_slap:

    Good thing God makes cutting tools and sanders, because I need ‘em.

    Note the incorrectly installed firewall with hole spacing for left thrust installed in a right thrust configuration.:face-palm::cryin:

  6. Ugh. I thought I was the only one that kind of stuff happens to. Sorry brother.

    Thanks guys. Moving forward.... The fuse sides have been liberated from the offending firewall. Now to go cut out a new firewall. Good practice.:black-eye:

    Sorry to see the mistake but it has happened to all of us and it does not look like it took a long time to fix and most important you still had sufficient material to make another one. Interesting to follow.
