Grunt Work on The Cowling is Done

Fitting and mounting the cowling has been quite a fulfilling experience. It was my first time really working with a finished carbon piece. I am amazed at how hard it is. Steve Wolf’s instructions are great! Nice diagrams that make it a piece of cake to understand what you need to do. Getting it done took a lot of patience and focus. Tony from Specialty Aero builds and sells the kit and was great clearing up questions. The last two efforts had been mounting the top hinge that holds the top seam together and drilling the holes on the back where it screws to the fuselage. Today’s work was drilling and mounting the bottom piano hinge which will hold the bottom seam together. Here are some pics.
