Brief Description:  Fiberglass Windshield Bezel 1st Gel Layer - Part 1

The gelcoat on the fiberglass windshield bezel, the spinner, and the upper gear cuffs went on today. It came out absolutely fantastic. I can hardly wait to see it sanded and primed. It looks like its going to be pretty amazingly smooth and nicely transitioned. The gelcoat is dyed black so that if any creeped in on the top of the fiberglass bezel, it would match and not be seen from the inside. I sanded the gelcoat on the spinner tonight and it looks pretty great.

The also reworked the upper gear cuff and some amazing fitting so they fit nice and tight up against the fuselage now.

And finally, great progress on the rework of the new engine cowling around the left and right sides where the original fit was off by as much as 1/4 of an inch. It's just rough cut right now, but the new look is absolutely amazing! Imagine how awesome it's going to look with gelcoat and primer!

We're getting close now!
