Brief Description:  Engine Compartment Cover

Plans:
1. Fab the cover for the engine compartment.
Status: 10% complete. Progress on the engine cover continues. The masking tape template was converted to a poster board template. Poster board is flatter than the tape version and bends and fits similar to aluminum. Hole placement was determined with the poster board and transferred to an aluminum sheet. The aluminum was then cut and secured to the fuselage. With the sheet in place the holes were then used as guides to mark the plate nut locations for the cowl. Plate nuts were then added. Finally the cover was assembled in place for a fit check. As expected some of the screw holes will need to be adjusted for a best fit as well trimming the edges a bit. For the most part the cover is shaping up as hoped.
