Everything has been braced before the work started!

Front nose work

This is the edge of the old skin, a reason to replace the nose in it's self!

The nose is ready to fit now and is just about to be painted on the inside before fitting.

It's a big day when the nose goes back on, I remember for me how much it felt like the destruction was over and we were making something again :)
