 "Cloudster" Construction Project Session #68

Speed 400 Cloudster Project

The covering will stretch tight in a straight line across each stringer and cause the edges of the oval bulkheads to stick out under the covering. The oval bulkheads need to be sanded down to form either a straight line between stringers or recessed concave between stringers so as not to touch the covering material at all.
