This way I control how much to replace in each section. If you zoom in on the last pic you can see what some of the seam looks like.


Keep going, you can't stop now and from the 6 million dollar man "we can rebuild him"

Finalky got back to my nose project. 3 passes on the last patch so I started on the new ugly stuff I found down low.

This patch will test my shaping skills for sure. Then I plan to make one more pass across all welds to fill in any remaining pinholes and a final sanding.

Right side done! I sure learned a lot but figure I am still a newbie at this. Next she goes off for stripping.
