Let the cowl fitting begin!

Oh my, oh my. The bottom cowling was not fabricated ideally from Van’s… Took a lot of cutting, grinding, filling, and sanding to get the cowling to line up pretty well. The sides, bottom, and front all look great. The issue was getting the curves on the bottom to match the fuselage. They are close but there will be some fiberglass work required to get them looking good.

Then it was time to finish up the tail. Got the trim tabs mounted, tested the electric trim to set the full in so the angle in the book can be used to set the electric trim clevis pins. Also got the wing tip and rudder tip fairings riveted on. Looks like a productive day!
