Bottom Sides DONE!
Got a little more work done last night and this morning. The sponson skins are on and mostly shaped in! Still have a little fairing to do, but they're more or less finished!
MXZ, thanks for the painter's tape idea. I'll get a roll and try it out... It definitely would have made a few things easier...

Port side sponson skin in place and clamped.
Again I used rubber bands to help hold the sponson tip in place without deforming it. Blue tape might have worked well here...
Some gentle clamp pressure to hold things in place.

Trimmed the tips a bit. Still a little fairing to do on the front halves of the sponson skins.
