Patching the Nose

As we got into the fiberglass work it quickly became apparent that our Tornado had been hit softly in the front. We would need to not only fix the nose, but also rebuild the frame where the nose mounts. Fortunately, once we measured the frame, it was completely straight, except for the area where the nose mounted. This would be a fairly easy repair.

The fiberglass nose, on the other hand, was a complete mess. Once we stripped it down further, we found evidence of really bad repair work which had been hidden by years of Bondo and neglect, .

We had to actually pull the repairs out, cut the nose, raise the right fender, and properly redo the original repair.
