Lining the Engine Shaft Continued

For lining the shaft opening I cut some pluggable plywood boards. I described it in my Post of February. Now the pluggable plywood boards were glued in place, the hollow space has been filled with foam "VOSSCHEMIE UNIZELL-SCHAUM HR-AT" and covered by a plywood board cut from cockpit floor opening. The T-shaped opening has been covered with fibreglass and all corners were filled with epoxy-fillets. Afterwards I primered the shaft with EPIFANES EPOXY PRIMER.
