More of the same.
Start sanding upper cowl. I think I have this pinhole filling figured out. I left on way too much resin. When sanding, you need to sand off all the high spots. The higher they are, the more sanding. Too much resin leaves the high spots higher. Should have agressively squeegeed off the resin after applying, and spent more time moving the resin puddle about to fill low spots. The good news is I think it may actually turn out nice. I think the second coat of resin is going to make a huge difference.

Continue deburring baffle parts. All the difficult ones are done. The rest will go fast.
