Continuing with the fariings theme, Dan (and other reports) have commented on the rivets working over time on the rear hinges. To try and stiffen any finishing / paint work I've decided to add a single layer of 2oz cloth over the aft halve of the sides. I used the masking tape method as a trim line.
Normal sort of f/g process, I used a folded strip of grease proof paper between the two edges to stop them being glued together.
One side of the nose leg fairing was also done and peel ply added to all the surfaces to help remove the excess resin.
