I skipped over gluing the front triangle together. My gloves were too sticky to touch the camera. Below are the dropouts sanded rough, cleaned with isopropyl alcohol then slathered in DP420. The same thing was done to the inside of the chain and seat stay ends.
Here is the finished glued BB joint. The tubes around the joints were sanded to bare carbon and cleaned with alcohol in preparation for wrapping with prepreg.
Same thing at the seat tube joint.
The shop was about 10C today so I have the rear end "curing" in front of the heater. It only blows warm air...nothing catching fire or melting.
Next step is to fillet the joints with fairing compound, sand and shape them.
