After I got the main gear removed which generated a lot of carbon fiber dust, I found the fuel leaks weren't coming from around the gear area but the areas of fiberglass before & aft of the gear. In fact the areas of leakage show a shortage of resin in the single fiberglass cloth over the foam stringers that are on the edge of the bottom & side panels. So the question I have is how to proceed with the repair.

Here is a picture showing 1 area I found, I just scraped the foam of the glass in one area
