This is a photo of the completed quadrant - push/pull system - forgot to get a finished one earlier.
I continued with the fibreglass cowl preparation. More sounding of yesterdays micro-balloons to start with.
Then another layer of resin / balloon mix, this time however I add 5ml of acetone to the single pump of resin and 'shot' of balloon and brushed it on. This seems to have resulted in a good thin film which I then squeegied. Both sides done - tomorrow more sanding!
Other misc things completed with countersinking / dimpling / drilling etc - bits work.
Dad is still working on the empennage fairing covers etc - slow iterative work.
