stringer box was ground down do remove some sloppy glass work. then reinstalled similar to factory. the variable is the stringer is now on top of core, when originally the stringer went to the bottom skin.

Awesome! Glad to see you back at it. I love that color combo on that thing. I bet it looks really good all cleaned up and shiny.
