Closed up and ready to seal.

The top is closed up. It's time to protect the balsa with a seal coat.

For this I'm going to use Solarez before glassing.  There are a couple reasons that I'm using polyester on this one instead of epoxy.  I like the fact that the resin hardens from UV.  That means minimal waiting for curing.  The other reason is I hope this board has a little flex.  All my epoxy boards are very stiff which is alright sometimes, but sometimes it's nice to have a little flex.  I'm using Sun Cure for the laminating resin.

Seal balsa with Solarez.

Now I just have to wait for a sunny day.
