Or am I overthinking this ?


This is the only damage I could find, I'm guessing G10 and C/F beats Gelcoat and F/G...

What arrangement do you use on your shock cord? Do you place the chute between the upper and lower body or put the chute at the end?

New nosecone built and ready for flight (just requiring a light sand with 1200 grit wet and dry and a cut and polish), painted with 2 pack iso-free as per previous Nosecone.

Excellent!

Are you going to repair the old NC or cut it down for a boat tail on a new project? :-)
