The leading edge above, was fixed by putting a round carbonfiber rod from the two good areas, to keep everything straight and strong, then filled in with West Cost Epoxy with fiber power

Once Striped of its original paint, you can see more of the damage from hitting the tree, a lot of areas of the jell coat were damaged.

This Striper was amazing and did not stink.

Also I could not afford the $1k for replacement retracts, so I used what I already had, and made a sweet bracket to use a regular nose wheel, I figured I would need the nose weight anyways due to the repairs

The first color is an 2K urethane single stage silver melt, very nice in person. Then added a custom metallic red, and metallic black

Did not like the plan looking exhaust, I could of painted it black like most of them are, but I added some chrome tape, then little flat black air brush, then still cleared it to lock it all in .
