Dad went back to the emmpenage fairing and worked on sanding and preping for some additional glass layups on the forward inner surfaces.
New day - talked it over, and decided to trim more!
Then onto new techniques - I managed to get some foam from a fibreglass specialist in Queenstown yesterday. He generally advises against foam, and prefers clay, but when I need to have something shaping against gravity I think this might work better. Also in NZ it is very hard to find XPS (extruded polysterene foam) - it is locally known as 'gold foam' and used in some comercial buildings, but I can't find any sources for local off cuts.
