Result, now to fix the multiple dings up nose.

I used a white tint to the resin to hide the four dings that needed routering clean – filling and then a layer of glass over the whole nose area wrapped around the rails.This glass panel was required as the nose had stress cracks all over it – notice Rory I squared of the Nose tip to remove damage and now it has a safer profile.
