gonna maybe lay down some carbon uni on strut and upright and wrap it up with glass round and round like hockey tape - make it nice n easy. i hate epoxy but might actually have to touch some , well with gloves anyway...
might add some super sized aluminium fillets at top to reduce torque too if welder doesnt decide to create a huuuge invoice..
really concentrating on cost - 2k on a foil inc postage to nz is ridiculous to me
My 1/8" aluminum is only about 3mm wall thickness. Thanks for the info. I will need to reinforce the aluminum tube.
