We recently had about 8 - 12" of snow which is unheard of. Not being a wimp, I told my wife I was going out to launch a rocket in the snow. My wife accused me of being crazy (which is really just stating the obvious). To keep marital harmony - again not because I wimped out because I hate cold weather, especially when wet and our snow was really wet and not because it sounded like good idea at the time, but the more I thought about it the less fun it really seemed - I postponed my launch until the next big Texas snow event. Which shouldn't be for a good long time.
Please post some pix when you get her up in the air.
Using an 1/8" drill bit, I drilled through one of the PPB, through the aft centering ring, and the aft transition skirt. Then I used one of JFLIS's long launch lugs, and with Elmers FnF, blended the LL to the PPB and the transition.
