    VERY-VERY WELL DONE. Some taping I have not thought of or used and will try.
    Many Thanks.

    OK, I'm looking for some 3M double sided adhesive.

    Is this what I should be looking for?

    If so, I can pick this up at the local office supply chain. If it is something different, could someone please post a link to the product and supplier (preferably an Amazon or shoppscr link)?

    Eli, the tape you are looking at is just that, tape. Not strong or sticky enough to hold the wings, spoiler & diaplane on effectively. The tape i'm using is actually a 2 mil transfer medium, really strong.The cost is a little more but one roll will probably last you a life time. Jim has this on the wall at the track & will have the strapping & packaging tape there as well on Sat. see ya soon, Bob

    Thanks!

    Great thanks to everyone that showed up today for the class & to those who couldn't make it, Roy did a fantastic job taking pics of the step by step. Thanks mate! Not sure how soon we'll have the pics out for viewing but will keep you all posted. Hope the class helped out those with unanswered questions & if you still need help, no problem just ask!
    See you all on race day!

    I have the pix on Photobucket and just have to add some Text from Bob
    it was really cool to watch Bob doing this and as is usually the case an Expert made it look easy I think once the session is posted it will be easy for anyone to follow
    here is the link to the pix

    OK all, for those waiting for the youtube video, Roy & I are going to reshoot the session ( without the class though ) didn't feel like we had the right shots for some of the steps in winging a body. We want to get this right so it's easy for all to understand so please be patient & we'll get something to you all soon.
    Thanks, Bob
