Top of the Dome.
2nd lot of machining to be done. Now to using the flexible automotive body files and the flexible sanding block with 60 grit dry sandpaper. Going to shape and sand the Dome to fit the dome template.
Now have the Dome fitting nicely into the dome template. Removed a lot of those lines, ridges and lumps with the flexible body file and flexible sanding block. These were hard to remove by using the wood lathe chisels only.
Used P 60, P 80 and P 100 grade dry sandpaper in the flexible sanding block. Now have a nice curve shape over the Dome.
1st coat of PVA wood glue. Vacuumed up all the wood chips and saw dust. Dusted down the area. Now to a good coat of PVA to fill in a lot of those little holes and start to seal the surface.
Dried PVA wood glue now gets a P 100 grade dry paper sanding.
Now to using body filler to start filling in a lot of those hundreds of wood chip holes.
