Default How to beef up Squall intake?

Hi everyone. I have a used phase 3 Sqyall I just picked . I went down a little hard an smashed up the intake. Squall intakes are thin. I refoamed the intake with some thick foam.

1. MY question isnt there some liquid with some type of fiber fiberglass sheeting I can lay on the intake an then paint the Fiber glass on? Seems I have heard of that.

I want to really beef up the intake area with some kind of metal mesh/fiberglass paint on material or something apporate for this kind of beef up project.

Any sites where I can pick up this type of material or what one could get at a home depot, auto zone, or hobby lobby would be great. I havent ran into this before so I need some direction.

2ns question any type of trycylce landing gear I can find and adapt to the squall to take off an land on grass or runways. That would help solve the the belly landing problem.

Never seen a squall with gear but it would be a nice project if I knew who carries this type of thing.

Thakns Guys John in Alabama
