Brief Description:  Lower Wing tip prep

while the general install of the lower wing tip skins went well there were still some ripples in the skin that had to be handled with filler . I decided to do this now rather than close the outer panels . There was at least one spot on each lower tip skin that appeared "high" and I questioned the possibility that I might have to rework some skin to remove these High ripples , much easier to rework at this stage.

I began by appling west epoxy over the entire tips. This would be my visual warning for sanding - if the west coat were broken it would be a clear indication to STOP sanding thus preserving the skin thickness.
Prior to adding filler ( west with 407 micro ) a light wet coat of west ( no filler ) was applied to insure good bonding. Because of the complex shape of the tip I used a spline to level the micro . After sanding to form a thin layer of light weight filler was used applied for final shaping then sealed with a coat of west .
