Wet sanded the fins last night, a little more to go maybe but pretty close now
Contemplating the wet epoxy wipe process rather than too much more sanding into the carbon or painting, will just need a good way to support the fins while drying.....
To support the fins I use 2 strips on wood that are screwed together with a thin plywood spacer between them at either end. This creates a channel that you slot the fin tabs into. Typically I mask the fin tabs to protect them from the finish, so the epoxy fillets can bond to the raw carbon.
Not a great picture, but hopefully you get the idea:
