Hellcat about finished.

Cause of engine failure on take off: The new tank I used had a stopper for glow fuel and I didn't realize it. The black stopper disintegrated.

Spray painted the belly pan.

Added spray foam so it won't be so vulnerable.

Put belly pan on wing and added weights while the foam cures so the foam will conform to the wing.

The bottom of the fuse was also spray painted using some old water base colors from previous planes. Not an exact match but close enough for the bottom. Besides, it'll look like a 'field repair'.
The belly pan will probably not show the different shade of gray/white since it meets the wing at a sharp angle.
