Brief Description:  Fix foam near spar carry-through

Wasn't confident I had interpreted the instuctions for tapering the foam around the spar cutout correctly. Reviewed a heap of other people's projects on the web, and think this is the way it is supposed to look. I had tapered the foam from 5.5" in front of the firewall back to 0, but others claim Nat expanded in email that ALL THE FOAM OVER THE WOOD was to be removed. Reading the instructions again I see it could be read to indicate this. Comparing to the pictures I printed I can see most that have done anything have done it the same way. Lots have just matched the Firewall, at least one attempted a repair later. I have now removed all the foam over the wood, and rounded the transitions.

Was a bit disgruntled by how much epoxy/micro dripped/flowed from previous layups, and worried the bottom will be a horrible example of this. Sides now guarded with a drip-apron, stuck on sides below scissor trim line with box tape.

Big layup follows in a couple of days. Due midweek NO HELPERS!!!
