How did you support the center section when you glassed it? foam inside? Did n't look like it..
WJB,
I screwed each end of the snorkel to their positions on the fuel injection servo and the baffle, then laid two pieces of wetted cloth in place to bridge the gap. This essentially tacked it all into a single piece. The gap between the pieces was small enough that the cloth didn?t sag. Once cured, I removed the snorkel and laid up the rest of the fiberglass.
