Lyra Phase 2-23


I began once more on the coachroof, this time with more of a detail sanding with finer materials and by hand as needed as the surfaces edged closer to completion.  The net result was still a bit shy of its final stages, with a few minor low areas that would require another round of fairing compound.  This was not unexpected, but one always hopes for the fewest rounds.

After cleanup and other preparation, I applied more epoxy fairing compound to those areas as required.

I had to take a break to attend to other business during the late morning, but after lunch I returned to work on the hull, sanding smooth the various epoxy repairs and fairing compound I’d started here and there, and then sanding the entire hull twice more, this time with 80-120 grit paper on a 6″ finishing sander, bringing the hull to its final state of readiness for primer.
