Dr. Zooch Ares I-X Build, Part 10, SRB Skirt

A 20/50 ring is used to support the open edges of the SRB skirt.

The sides of the 20/50 ring is tapered to fit inside the open end.
The inset picture shows using the shroud to match the sand angle.

After sanding the ring seam was filled with CWF.
Just the bottom of the ring got a coat of CA and was sanded smooth.

Before gluing in the ring the low edge of the SRB skirt got a coat of CA for strength.

The shroud was slide over the tube end and the tapered ring slid inside. Do a dry fit first then use glue.
