Starting to remove the center panel on my -8 to do a carbon fiber layup. Was going to send to Stein to have them use real carbon fiber ($$$). When I did the carbon fiber tape wrap on the RV-4 panel I had trouble with the screws puckering the tape. Took some time to get it all straightened out. I was using the 3M Dinoc wrap but I got a roll of the 1080 tape this time.
So you didn't have any issues with the screws puckering the tape at all? Did you do something special or let the tape sit on the panel for a while? Does it harden a bit if you leave it for a while?
