A little Habu 32 repair!

I had a little Habu 32 mishap, a minor crushed nose in shipping. I started with a little BVM QPoxy repair (5 minites) sanded down and wet sanded to 2,000 grit then some white paint and she's good as new! Might need to put a little black or red nose color back on for the tip, what do you think? Total repair time, 1 hour and 15 minutes... ;-)
