X2 Just walking past the form can create enough air movement to screw up plastic wrap.

Really been enjoying this thread, some very good tips. About the plastic wrap, I have been having very good luck using the .4 mil painters plastic.
It comes in a roll and has 4 folds, 2 of the folds are a little wider than the other 2, I measure off about 8" longer than my glass. I cut along the folds, using the wider pieces for 1pc recurves. I do my layups on the plastic, on a table, then wrap my layup (take gloves off before wrapping) I then use masking tape to secure wrap and fold the ends over to catch any squeeze out I then can lay bundle on form. Since the plastic is somewhat clear and I have marked the center on my riser laminations and glass, I can line everything up with the center of my form.
