2.5 hrs
Though this would go quick, but it was challenging. Glassed the inlet ramps onto the upper cowling. Mostly pretty simple, but tried to attach strips of fiberglass to the upper forward ramp/cowling seam, to help hold it on. Problem is, you can't reach or see that area to properly apply fiberglass. I think the trick would be to use really wet glass, as opposed to saturated but well squeegeed strips normally used.

Added micro paste to the visible portion of the gap. This will be sanded down to make a nice smooth transition.
