Got my Pico back good as new, with a brand new case and rubber tube. Got two new pockets for the RDS. Center section relam is done and started laying filler on top. May need a couple rounds to get it back where it needs to be.

Started on the rt tip, which is the worst part. I elected to go in steps since the break was at a foam seam which separated and crushed a little. The pieces do not go back together quite right. First I bagged the aileron break and checked it for alignment. Then added a little wedge of foam at the seam to fill up the gap and bagged the skin back down behind the spar. If that comes out good I will evaluate whether to try the hot water trick, just force the skin back down with the mylar, or slice a pc of the LE out and replace it. 2 months left and things are looking good.
