The ends of the tunnel are rounded off.
On the left the sides of the tunnel are rounded with a sanding block.
Draw a pencil line around the end to show the shaping depth.
Carve off some of the excess.
Finish rounding above the pencil line with 220 grit, followed by 400.
The fairings are taped off where the edge of the taper starts.
Draw a pencil line at the first layer to sand to.
The ends are sanded down the the first layer of the laminate.
The tape is removed. and the fairings are ready for CWF filler.
