any one know if JB weld will react to proline? i am thinking of tacking the fins in place with jb weld then when i pull the fin can out fillet it all with pro line. and what is the drying time of pro line?

Sent you an email mate, didn't see this post...

this sounds like a good build technique  blwink

Proline will be fine with JB, I'd be cleaning off an excess JB from attaching the cord edge to MMT, and a good rough up, before applying Proline anyways.

Still I would add milled fibre, or micro-spheres in with the proline, just to lighten the loading.

i drilled some holes into the aire frame to place epoxy around the centering rings.


i brought some syringes from the chemist a couple of them i cut off the pointy bit off so it would suck up the epoxy easier and i took the plunger out of the others and filled them up then squirted the epoxy into the air frame. place some tape over the holes and let cure.
