The main layup in this section is a 7″x39″ piece of triax between the gear bulkhead and the firewall, on the floor to support it since there’s no foam here. It’s a pretty simple process, it just absorbs a bunch of epoxy, is really awkward to work with, and has to go over the conduits on the floor (under the gear legs). Overall, a good time to practice your relaxation breathing. Once it cured, we cut a 1″ hole in both conduits for wiring and the like (the brake lines come out here, for example).
