Brief Description: Prep horizontal hinges for riveting
I machine c/s the holes in the lower cowling for the horizontal hinge. I also made a couple of clips to rivet in with the hinges to retain the pin for the vertical hinges. I opened up the holes near the nose where the horizontal pins exit (will be covered with the pin covers) and cut pins for the side hinges. I removed the lower cowl along with the horizontal and vertical hinges. I cleaned up the inboard face with a maroon pad and scratched up the outboard face with #60 grit. Cleaned and shot a coat of primer on the inboard face of the hinges.
