Yesterday afternoon Dan started on the canopy skirt. First things first – cover everything the resin will touch with tape. So after about 4 rolls of wide masking tape along with poster board the Panther looks like a little funny.

Then Dan started laying out the fiberglass and cut a bunch of 8 inch wide strips.

 

Mixing up the resin in a cut off beer can with a wooden tongue depressor works well.

Then he laid the strips and started blotting and brushing the resin on, layer after layer.

After about 4 hours of this we pulled the Panther out to stand back and take a look.

And then Dan started to grid it down

And then back on the Panther it goes.

Next the skirt will be fitted to the frame and hinge.

Go Team Panther!
