You can land at military bases if you get permission in advance and complete a bunch of paperwork. You are not going to be able to call up the tower out of the blue and ask to land. It will really help though if you are flying a government-owned plane and have official business to do there. I am currently renting planes from a government-sponsored flying club which makes getting permission to land at other military bases a little easier.

I was told I could fill out the paper work but was still going to be denied landing permission. It did not even mater that I had been previously veted by homeland security, health and human services and the FBI. Unless I had official reason to be on base -- no way.

Ha! You have to be vetted by a bureaucrat in the Pentagon who has his own fiefdom. http://www.e-publishing.af.mil/share...AFI10-1001.pdf

[A civil landing permit can be granted to] Retired US military members and other retired US uniformed service members with a military identification card that authorizes use of the commissary, base exchange, and or military medical facilities (G). Retired Service members, operating their own aircraft, leased aircraft, or other available aircraft in conjunction with activities related to retirement entitlements authorized by law or regulation.
But it takes weeks to get one and it's hardly worth the hassle unless you plan to do it regularly.

I tried the card thing once. Didn't like it as made my hand cramp holding such a thin card. I took a regular 6" squeegee and cut it in half

For flat surfaces, ie tapes, etc I have found that a 6" drywall spatula device is great. Since I was introduced to them, I almost never use the 'ol rubber or plastic squeegees.

One thing is that you have to be careful with is not to snag the fabric with the sharp corners. Possibly rounding them off would help.

Wow I guess I'm am an old fart. I still like the rubber squeegee. I have five or six of them. They clean up easy with vinager. But I tend to cleanup up and reuse a lot. Epoxy cups just get better afternthe 2nd or 3rd use. Tongue depressors get wiped and reused dozens of times. I even made a dozen or so oversized stir sticks. Easier to stir and keeps hand cramps away.

Here is my tools when I did the spar-cap on the canard:



To old credit-cards, cut to 3" wide. Used the right one as a comb to straighten the fibers. Worked like a dream - for me! Of course, I didn't invent this myself, I found this by reading other builders logs at http://tugantek.com/cozylinks/

Oh yes - I saw that one coming. We can split 50/50 if you get anything out of that!
