Bonded the left tailfin's strake today.

March 27, 2002
I finished the last of the internal fillets and bonded the right wing's strake. I also started work on the payload section by bonding the bulkhead into the coupler. For some reason, I've ignored working on it, wasting some perfectly good excess epoxy from other sessions.

Bonded the left wing's strake.

March 29, 2002
Filled the aft section of the rocket with PML's two part expanding foam. Bonded the coupler/bulkhead into the payload section. PML has started making a coupler rather than peeling down a corresponding body tube. The downside of this was the 3 inch coupler was very thin and flimsy. The new couple is much thicker, but fits a little too loose in my opinion.
