on the spit from chapter 7 I did as many
of the LG glass reinforcements as I could. I measured the final width
(after all the layups) between the aft and forward LG bulkheads. I came
in at 7.75" +/- .05". I may need to modify the tube that goes
through the LG hoop tabs slightly, as I understand the fit of the tube
to the LG bulkheads needs to be a 'machine' fit (snug, no slop). The
picture shows three or four of the big ones. All were done between two
sheets of poly on the build table, cut to size, then fit and folded (with
the poly still on both sides) to fit. Only then did I remove the poly
from one side and work out the bubbles. Most of them anyway. You can
see a long vertical one at the tape from an earlier chapter. I filled
it from the top with epoxy in the syringe, and an 18ga needle, with heat
from the hair dryer.
