I know I haven't posted any progress lately (been sick for the last week) so here it is.
At this point I have put the fuse aside as I'm currently building a test fixture so that I can run the fan unit and see what numbers I'm getting.

1K carbon cloth layed in the fuse floor in order to stiffen fuse area (as some builders have done).
The new Carbon/Ply fan bulkhead (right before it was glued).
Another angle of the newly cut bulkhead (still need to make fan mounts).
New Carbon/Balsa root facing ribs (decided to laminate the balsa ones with 0.5mm carbon plate to give a better or solid bond to the fuse......still need to be glued).
