long day it took some effort to remove the tail pipe,i was trying not to have to cut it but i did have to slice it on the sides a bit plus i had a over lap in the zipper area.the pipe (pair of pants) has some slight hips and this was hard to get passed.so i may work the shape a bit to help with part removal.the lay up was easy but i spent about 2hrs getting it off .of course i have some special tools now and i know what to do so should be easier next time .

Add me to the Christmas list for both. Just throw the shroud in when you get done.
Thank you for the work and effort for this build, I'm glad Fahim jumped on board for this and we all will do this one justice.
Oh! Happy Thanksgiving to all.
