The last few days, I went on with the wheel fairings repairs. As usual with fiberglass it's only filling and sanding.
Today I shot a thin layer of primer and there still are some small areas needing attention. But I should be done tomorrow.
With some luck, we will have nice weather tomorrow and be able to get out for a small flight with or without the fairings.

Last time I was at the hangar, I uninstalled the wheel fairings and today I began the repair.
I first sanded around the cracks and glued everything back together adding one layer of fibercloth. I'll add a few more layers next time.

I also noticed that I had forgotten to make a nice filet inside the fairing which didn't help in my case. I added the filet and included a layer of fiber cloth.

Before installing the fairings, I took the cowl off to lower idle a bit and inspect the firewall forward. All looks good.
This is the plane with all the fairings.
