First Ply of Carbon
So Mike and Mark got the first ply of carbon down on IT2 on wednesday night, bagged and de-bulked, but thursday morning discovered a fair amount of puckers. I headed up last night to help figure out a solution. Heat seems to be the trick and we figured out that with some ducting parts we could use the bullet heaters to heat up the mold and get the cloth to lay out nicely. We ran out of propane and heaters, but they should be able to finish that process tonight and hopefully lay the second ply on Saturday. If I can get along with my other projects this weekend I hope to get up there Sunday or Monday afternoon to check in and give a hand.
