Brief Description:  Install upper air ramps, trim baffles

I’ve been out of town and away from the build for the past week—time to get back in shop. I placed the fiberglass upper air ramps in position on the upper cowl, drilled some holes and clecoed to the cowl. The plans don’t show much of anything in this area, so I looked at pics of other builders logs and guessed at where they maybe should go. I installed the upper cowl—as best it would fit and marked on the #1 & #2 side baffles the point of contact with the upper ramps. Then I removed the cowl and the side baffles and trimmed down to the line. I went thru this process for nearly an hour—probably have another hour or so before I get to a final trim line. I’m trying to trim no more than ¼” at a time until the cowl will sit down. It has a ways to go, but getting there.
