Dec 14 - Trimming butt joints
Once the butt joints have cured, you must trim off the extra epoxy and glass tape. I did this with a very sharp Exacto-type knife, shown here, before filing the panel edges smooth with a medium file. With a little care, your panel widths at the joint will perfectly match the rest of the panels.
