Remember that the scarf for each layer is one inch per laminate layer
at each edge.
Good luck with the repair.

The situation is that I have removed the lifted-out fiberglas
skin, and the foam is intact, and the wing is otherwise not
deformed. So (unlike Bob McFarland's infamous experience, in
which his pour-in-place foam did NOT fill the void), there is
no need to insert foam or replace a block of missing foam. It
is a question of the fiberglas skin/spar replacement strength.
I understand that replacing glas is treated in the manual, and I
will do this (and NOT replace the wing: I've done that once
already, and I do not wish to build a THIRD upper wing !).
