Cowling

chapter 23 engine installation
This week I glassed in the rail on the top cowl that will keep the baffles on top of the cylinders from leaking through the top. I drew lines on the cowls where I wanted the rail to go and then layed up 2 plies of glass on tin foil then set it in place against tape and cardboard held in place with more tape. After this cured I removed the temporary holding fixture and then scratched up the new glass and then layed up another 2 plys on the other side. After this cured I took it to the airport and trimmed it to fit the aft cylinders are much closer to the cowl than the for cylinders are.
