A couple of shots of the front with the new motor box temporarily installed. As I'm typing the GG glue is doing it's thing and foaming up nicely. I'm thinking I'll strip the sheeting off. I might also just replace the 3/16 stringers in the process. There are three short ones on the top and one long one on each side. I think it would be easier in the long run than trying to clean off the glue and excess wood. I think I may be giving up some strength by trying to splice where the sheeting is cut. I had to cut the sheeting to be able to gain access to make a decent repairs. Besides with the sheeting off I can get a really good look see at the rest of the ply structure and find any other damage or broken glue joints.
