And off with the peelply

No pictures this time.
The resin has cured, and the frame must be freed of its second skin of peelply. We put the peelply all around the frame (on both sides). This makes it extremely difficult to get off the stuff. An hour of really hard work yields sore fingers and a nice clean frame. A really nice clean frame.

To be honest, this frame exeeds my expectations and it is by far the most beautifull that I build up to now. Again some ridges, but only near the edge of the new layer. This means that I can sand those off without losing strength or stiffness.

Next step: sanding.
