Unless you are experienced in composite repair methods, we recommend you start with the basics taught in the Glider Repair Lab 1 training video.

We all crash, and we don't always have the cash to just buy a replacement glider. In this second Repair Lab, you'll learn some advanced methods for fixing the most challenging kinds of composite airframe damage suffered in high-energy crashes.

Taught by expert Paul Naton, the Glider Tech Lab 2 will teach you useful new techniques for putting a broken F3J-style carbon fuselage back together from 3 separate pieces. You'll learn how to make a custom carbon doubler piece that will mechanically join the rear end of an Icon 2 boom and then finish the repair with carbon cloth and peel-ply fabric used as a compression-release layer. Then you'll watch as Paul re-joins the front fuselage nose area that was completely broken off with both internal and external laminations along with a cool method of inlaying carbon tow to bridge some shattered cracks in critical structural areas. Final repair finishing from sanding and filling to primer coats are also taught in detail.

Next you will then see how to work on a carbon/kevlar/glass Onyx JW wing with a torn-out wing tip joiner and major center panel damage. At first this wing seems like a write-off, but with careful re-assembly, reinforcement with carbon and glass, and a ton of filling and sanding, this wing comes out looking close to new and stronger than stock. You'll learn every technique and trick used to make this no-longer-in-production high performance wing safe again for soaring. You will learn how to fill cracks, re-glue drag spars so they are straight, fabricate a root rib, install new incidence pins, reinforce hard points, and do all the final finishing and painting.

To finish this deep 2 hour tutorial, you'll learn some useful spray painting tips that will help you get great professional results from standard spray can colors. Doing repairs is all about the right materials applied in the correct way followed by lots and lots of filling and sanding. With the techniques taught in both of the Glider Repair labs, you should be able to fix most minor and major damage in a safe, professional, and aesthetically pleasing manner.
