Continuing with the front wheel fairing it is pretty similar to the mains. The normal problems with marking a straight line on a set of compound curves. Also discovered the front nose fairing has 'dimples' marking the bearing line, it is a shame the rest of the fibre glass parts don't have the same.
With the weather improving, we diverted track to some spraying. This should enable some progress on the fairings mounting.
The top coat painting went OK, but primer was proving difficult - no idea why, maybe air flow rate was a little high.
Finishing the day, went back to fairing. Aft locations were mounted up, I considered using #8 screws but that doesn't work as the brackets are wider than the fairing front.
