Love the tractor, and the dual exhaust!  Does she sound good with those mufflers?

Update.  After making forms out of aluminum foil tape and drilling holes though the remaining hinge area for cross flow, i embedded nut inserts in the fiberglass and filled the entire front nose with Smooth Cast epoxy resin. Roughly 50oz of liquid pored into the voids in the nose.  Turned out really good and has major torsional rigidity.  I have since done the same with my non broke SS16 Nose which are the pics in primer at the end.  I was able to save the new decals and all the silver on my repair.  

Nice job on that nose!

The hinge holes always seems a weak point.

I wish i had pics of the nose before i started fixing it.  It was in 4 pieces.  The hinge holes were fine.
