Could be malarkey. Try building a homebuilt airplane and betting your life on your method of gluing. If it works for you, go ahead. Glue tests by engineers say differently.

Gladly. Based on true numbers, my failure rate is 0%. Even if I had 1 panel fail, that is .1%. That’s better than almost any production part. Most mass produced part manufacturers (non life threatening) aim for less than 2%

I do this for a living so speed is key. This is an extremely low risk practice.

At the pace I glue panels together, there is a much higher chance I miss a season split or hair line crack, than a glue joint failure.

But hey, to each is own. Your probably not changing and I know I’m not.
