Brief Description: Upper and lower wing hinges installed on flange an
The hinge was put into place and a line drawn to cut the flange in half on the horizontal line. The upper part was added to the cowling to prevent an uneven height. The lower part of the hinge was riveted onto the flange and the cowling was put into place and drilled and riveted with the spacer behind the hinge. I found it very hard to remove so once it was off all the tops of the hinges were they meet have been ground and filed so they blend into each other with no binding. The lower cowling was next and this worked out great as well. Here I was able to used the drill on 4 holes which was better on the fingers from the drill twisting.
I have stainless welding rod so the hinge pins will be changed out and an end welded on to pull out and bush in.
