A’cowling we will go

Hours: 5.0 | Posted in Cowling & Baffles, Engine

Sanded the rear edge split lines of the cowling to provide an even 1/16″ gap to allow for paint.  Sanded the gearleg cutout to center the leg, by widening it to one side & straightening the lines.

Rolled on a layer of slightly thinned epoxy, then later in the day, a squeegeed second layer.  It’ll get another layer in the morning, then allowed to fully cure before sanding.

Spent a bunch of time wrestling with adel clamps in the process of installing a metal piece for the last 16″ or so of the breather tube.  The end of the tube is cut to align against the left exhaust pipe.
