Zenith750 Cruzer While I've been working with the Icing on the windshield fairing, I figured I might as well use it on the tail fairing.

Since I spend half of my life in hotel rooms, I save the key cards for this purpose. I've got a lot of them but gave a big handful to my neighbor.

They work great for spreading filler and fiberglass resin.

Zenith750 Cruzer This is a foam sanding block I bought at Home Depot. I used a router to round the edges so it fits in the curves of the fairings.

Then I just wrap sandpaper around the block.

I've just been using a small piece of sandpaper and sanding by hand.
