Sidewinder wing repair

I asked Erik if I could have a damage sidewinder wing he was going to throw away and here is my attempts to repair it.
the spars were broken in 3 places, some foam was chunked out and split.

I took some flat carbon and made a splint on 2 sides of the spar then used some fiberglass roof/ drywall tape and epoxy to reinforce the area.

I have alot more work to do but its a start.
