Well got the dings out with a travel clothes iron. I read up on Oracover and used 150 degC to shrink the Oracover wrinkles. Apart from some shallow dents the wing is as good as new.

Took the opportunity to replace that suspect Eurgle with the spare HK Vigor. All good now.

Removed the unneeded nose lead which was not easy. I ended up cutting 5mm of the nose off and then drilling the lead out. I'm replacing the missing 5mm with a solid silicone rubber cone. Molded this using the detergent shaping technique. At least there's some give in the nose now!

So just waiting for the silicone to cure and she's ready for the air again AUW is now 396gms.
