Carbon spar caps, fwd spar

Vacuum bagging carbon spar cap on forward spar. I am starting to get the hang of it. Less mess and much quicker.

My vacuum pump was starting to lose its vacuum, dang. I was getting only 24 in. HG which is not desirable. I changed the oil in the affair from 10w-30 motor oil to 80-90 gear oil (much thicker) and BINGO: 30 in. HG. Ha ha it is little things like that which make a man happy!
