STRAKES. Glassing Upper Main Spar Cap-Top Strake Junction #5

I saturated 2 BID over plastic and placed oversize peel ply on top. I hot-glued a brush between two pieces of wood and this assembly in turn to a 3-foot wood ruler to make an “extended” brush. I then brushed some epoxy over the flox and the adjacent strake’s inner skin where the lay-up would be placed. I ended up with an excess of epoxy as one cannot control the amount when working at a distance. I removed the epoxy excess by laying paper towel over the areas and stippling over them with the long brush.
