As Steve said, use strips. Let about 1/2" overlap the previous peel ply strip. This will give you something to grab onto to peel it off. I use this as a reminder that the peel ply is still there. Peel ply that is wetted out on all sides can disapear into the layup, I mean that you might forget that it is still on and do another layup over it. BAD THING!!! You do not have to use peel ply in large sheets. Piecing together works excellent for odd shapes and rounded parts. Always overlap leaving a tail hanging in the wind over the previous ply.

I asked my wife about "some fabric thats thin and tough with a tight weave - sorta nylon'ey stuff" and She hauled out a great wad of bright yellow fabric that squeals when I fingernail it. Aparently it was the leftovers from some bridemaids dresses (Mavis sews) and I was welcome to it. Anyway, it works real good, and is abundantly obvious from fifty feet away that it's peelply.

Hmmm, if I didn't already have peel ply I'd check-out the bridal shops. "Hi, I'd like to look at your real gaudy colored & cheep material for brides-maid dresses"

There is something to be said for being a eunuch, you get to keep all your money for yourself.

Yeah, and your mind is no ALWAYS distracted to the fairer sex so you can concentrate on things like airplane building. GEE, if'n I had all the money back that I have spent on getting la.....uh, romancing charming young...and no longer so young ladies, I could buy a Cirrus and keep it in gas for years......not to mention the time to fly it.

All the best,

Chris

Well...wait a minute...sometimes a single guy's airplane-ability is a consolation prize, sometimes not. ps, probably dependent on your frustration with jane(s) vs your frustration with your plane(s). flying alone much sure won't feel like a 1st prize.

Move along now, there's nothing there to see.

But about the flying alone part, yes. I putzed around as a student pilot and flew around a bit by myself. I decided it was no fun that way so I got back on the program to finish off my license.
