Dr. Zooch Ares I-X Build, Part 5, SRB Shroud

Here's the three shrouds I made.
The best fitting shroud was used and the other two thrown away.

The inset picture shows the 2050 rings in place on either side of the 1" long BT-20 tube.

Do some dry fitting before gluing.

The ends of the shrouds were evened up by gently turning them on sandpaper on a block.
The ACM assembly was glued into the top of the long BT-20.

I used a glue stick to attach the shroud. It's not as wet as white glue from a bottle.
There will be a raised shoulder over the bottom of the BT-50. This will disappear when the upper wrap is added.
