Default Using micro on the F-22 doubler before installation

Do I micro the side of the F-22 doubler that it going to make contact with the F-22 bulkhead before I install it?

Yes. All foam gets a slurry prior to glassing, else you get a poor glass bond to the foam.

I cant remember, but I think I glassed the inside side of the doubler and floxxed it to the side of the samely treated F22, then microed the outside and plied them overlapping together on the outside.

But you've got the plans, I'm nowhere hear them.

Just so there's no confusion:

You use micro on bare foam before glassing it.
You use flox when joining cured glass (after you sand it)
