A lot of time triming and fitting the cowls, marking out fastener locations making a final decision on the over locking fitting for the right side. Decided to use some recycled Baron front locker and nose cone strap & over centre locking devices. Lost a day tracking down some parts.
Also took the top cowls to a sheet metal shop and put them through a set of rollers to form a better curve. They still have a lot of tension, however I feel that this should not be a problem once the latches and all fasteners are installed.
