Section: 46B
Hours: 4

I was able to back rivet the nut plates for the lower fairing attach points.

The plans call for a built up flox / epoxy fillet between the lower fairing and the wheel pants. I applied clear packing tape on the wheel pants in the fillet area to prevent bonding. Then I mixed up the flox and applied a bead around the fairing with wider areas around the attach points. The bead is slightly higher than the edge so that it will mash down when the fillet is attached to the wheel pant.

Here is what the fillet looks like after attaching to the wheel pant.

And a view from the inside of the wheel pant. I'll let it cure overnight and clean up the result tomorrow.
