Pro-sealing the wing root
I venture to say that each and every one of you who ever had to deal with pro-seal in one way or another, will be able to relate to this strip. No matter how much you prepare before you start sealing, it will always be a mess. And even if you’re not a mechanic or homebuilder, you can also tell just by looking at a pro-seal job (during your preflight, for example), that the application process must have been a mess by the little streaks that come off from the sealed area. Sometimes you also find wipe marks where the mechanic desperately tried to wipe of the excess sealant. Pro-seal has the tendency to just end up EVERYWHERE, your clothes, the floor, all over the aircraft, and of course your phone since you always get that one phone call you really need to answer right after you mixed the sealant. I am sure this probably applies to most resins or anything that comes in two compounds to be mixed before applying, but in my experience pro-seal has been the worst. The smell of it doesn’t help either.
