Default glassing the patriot nose

i recently had a mishap with my patriot. the nose area was busted up a little bit. right now the fuse is painted with top flight paint. i was thinking about glassing the nose area to reinforce it. what combination can i use and what would be the best procedure. also anyone else have any other ideas

Check with Razor........He knows alot about the Patriot Jet From Great Plains, I think there were a few other threads on here about re-doing the front nose/cowl area. Tim

Default Ouch!

Try .75 oz. glass and use either Z-Poxy (Premixed stuff..) or mix regular Epoxy and rubbing alcohol- mix the epoxy as you normally do, then add a tad of rubbing alcohol- just enough to make it milky...

You can apply it with a clean paint brush, a sponge, or a latex glove (I usually tack the edges down with fast ZAP so it does not move when epoxy mix is applied..)

Remember tho- the more alcohol you add, the longer it takes to cure- I usually let it sit overnight-
Hope this helps!
