Pic 1. Second layer of 1/2" plywood glued to first layer. Used a notched trowel to spread the adhesive. All seams staggered. This layer of plywood was not scarfed. They were butted at beam. The second layer was clamped down with screws and washers. Screws removed after adhesive cured. The radar mount was scarfed to the new plywood.

Pic 2. Second layer of plywood glued, screw holes filled and sanded. Used System Three Quick Fair epoxy fairing compound to fill holes and fill low spots for the first time. Quick Fair can be cheese grated in 3 to 4 hours and allows multiple applications in one day.

All fasteners were removed after second layer was bonded and cured.. All the overhanging areas had an additional 1/2" plywood glued to the underside for a 1 1/2" thickness. This to eliminate the frames and hollow cavity holding up the overhangs.
