Fiberglass Surface Work

Tonight I sanded the filler that I applied yesterday to the new fiberglass cowl bump and the windshield fairing.

The windshield fairing is ready to go, and the bump only needs a little bit more.

The amount of work required to finish the bump was much less than on previous parts. I would definitely recommend the finer cloth on the exterior, since it was so much easier to finish. Tonight I also made the aluminum strips that will support the rivets on the lower nose bowl. Those strips will help distribute the load of the rivets quite a bit.
