Default Re: doing the wing skin layup alone

What helped me was to make a fixture to hold the fiberglass roll up high enough to let me pull it off and across the wing into position. The height of the roll was about 5 feet. Even with the cloth drooping some, it was above the microed wing and let me pre-position the cloth before I let it down. The roll holding fixture was made of some 2X4's and metal electrical conduit for the roll to rotate on. I also did the layups in colder weather that allowed more time for the epoxy to flow. It still took hours to wet out all the cloth but it wasn't bad.

The fourth, and final, wing skin layup done alone.
By this point, it was as easy as any other layup.
