Just got done doing an extended nose using my CNC router to cut all the internal structure using tab and slot construction.

Jason, a picture please please, pretty please. 🙂

What I meant by cnc was the main support structure being tab and slot. I did not take any photos of thd parts off the cnc and then glassed on both sides so I included the pics in the above post. The narrow pieces are for the adjustable rudder pedals with provisions for t nuts. The other pic is a rudder pedal for adjustable ratio with fwd. mounted master cylinders. Now working on the latch for the nose lid using a keychain quick release. Also tig welded and machined a new NG6 with tapered roller bearings. Installing a Wright Nose Lift. Will post some more interesting photos in the near future.

I have a buffer with an 8" mud hog wheel on it. Is the blue foam structural as well? I feel like there is lots of threads on the foam as well.

The foam is for maintaining overall structures, just like in that video you recently posted. Its job is to keep the fiberglass in position.
