I enlarged the openings in the bottom of the wheel pants today. I made a cut with the dremel, then sanded. Trial fit, repeat. It is getting almost close enough that I need to make a cut for the gear leg next. Before doing that, I need to get the plane leveled, which will require jacking it up somehow. I’m thinking of using the engine hoist with straps around the “beefy” part of the motor mount, but need to think about this a bit more. Many builders wait until the wings are on—then use jacks in the tie down area to lift the plane.
Enlarged wheel opening--R. side needs more opening
