But the 2" tapes are junk.

It keeps lifting an edge, the greenhouse repair tape is much better.

Its all finished now and ready for its maiden flight around the end of jan 2005.

I do think that I'll be converted to CDI ignition by then as well.


Let us know how the CDI conversion goes. Be sure to take pics as you go.

Since I have tons of tape that I got independantly of my Order, Im not at all interested in bothering myself about the weird 2" tape.

It seems fine in flat areas, but if it is stretched even slightly, it creeps and lifts the edges. I feel that a bit of time in the hot sun of California will either harden the tape glue enough to make it stop slipping, or cause it to come off completely, in which case I'll replace ALL of it with the greenhouse repair tape.

The 3M 9469PC tape is what provides all the adhesion of the Tedlar to the metal, and the leading edge tapes just seal the edges and provide additional grip.

Im not to worried about it.

I'll take Pics of the CDI conversion and post my progress under its own topic.
