What Peter said. How did you get that foam so smooth? Doesn't look sanded.

Insert glued into place, a bit of sanding and a layer of fiberglass, some fairing and once painted no one will be the wiser. :lol:

Dougster, I did sand the foam with a mouse sander. Makes a mess but gave a good result.

Lovely insert repair, it doesn’t get any neater than that. Considering the amount of changes your making, you’re getting them done very quickly. Looks great.

Made some progress on the console prototype v2.0

Needed a beer to size things up and get a feel for it :-)

The console is slowly taking shape.

Took some time to get everything to fit correctly! Image

Got it glued into place, now the challenge of fitting the multiple pieces to create the curves.

Lots of little other things done, seat benches almost done,soon to be glassed in place.
