Re: Patching Around Strut

All that cracked and separated fairing compound needs to be ground away, then refaired with new.. but I'd also be trying to figure out why there seems to be enough vibration/movement to cause that kind of separation so it doesn't happen again.

Engine alignment? Bent shaft? Seriously out of balance prop?
