Wing Tip Lens
Since I am waiting for a tech council visit, and the fuseloge has been delayed, I am now turning my focus to the wing tip lens. Some people spend hours on these and I am finding that it has taken me a few myself. First you cut the single provided piece of plexi into two halves, one for each wing. Then trace the outline of the cut out on the plexi, and cut with die grinder tool. Then you start sanding and keep sanding, trying not to scratch it or mess it up in any way. I am zeroing in on the right tip per the pics, but not completely finished.
