We’ve been working on the shells over the past few weeks and got a lot done. The shells have been trimmed and joined, and also narrowed to meet the new specifications. Check out the photo gallery.
We spent this weekend laying up the new top shell. Friday we did a practice lay up, Saturday we did the outer layer, and Sunday we did the inner layer. Check out the photo gallery.
Lately we’ve been working on getting the shell molds ready for the lay-up process. This weekend we sprayed them with primer. Check out the photo gallery.
We will be having two trips out to Richmond Field Station to see the solar car and show off the workshop. Both trips will cover the same material so there is no need to go to both. The first will be this Saturday and the second will be one week from Saturday. We’ll be meeting at 10am at the west gate of campus (map). We’ll be driving out to RFS and probably be returning in the early afternoon.
