Nose cone repair mini series

Postby locost220 » Mon Dec 20, 2021 6:50 am

Hope you join me as i carry out the repairs and paint on someone elses damaged nosecone, in a bid to help others who might want to have a go at the same or similar.
This is only my personal view on the subject and sure others will have their own way of doing things, but it just a means to an end.

We all hope not to need this knowledge, but minor things do happen, and a new nose cone isn't cheap. Thanks :D

Been trying to upload the 2nd part of this for the last two days given I thought I could load up to 20 min video.
After I got bored waiting I decide to split it in two so here is the next part.
