Sanded Slot Fillers, Glued Bottom Pieces Back on Booster Cover Tops

Having sanded the slots on the booster cover top pieces last night, tonight I sanded the small MDF filler pieces that will partially fill the slots.

The filler pieces are made from 1/4" MDF and 1/8" MDF glued on top of each other. The slots are supposed to be about 5/16" tall, so about 1/16" needs to be removed from the stack.

Still barely peeking over the top...

Now we have a nice fit.

After repeating for the pair of slot fillers on the other booster cover top piece, it's time to glue up.

After ensuring that the bottom part is perfectly aligned, I clamped it down and I'll let it dry overnight.
