Engine Bolted On, Cowling On
Sometimes on your project you work and work and work, and not much seems to happen. Other times, like last night, you work a bit and BANG! Big leap forward.
We started the night with the motor mount bolted on the firewall. Our Lord mounts for the engine arrived from Aircraft Spruce so we had what we needed to hang the engine.
The great part about a group build is you don’t need an engine hoist, just muscle it into place.
With the lower cowl duct taped in place, time for some fitting and trimming.

Lots of fitting to go but starting to look pretty good.
Tracey laying out where the cowl fasteners will go.
Jerry drilling the holes so we can cleco it into place.
Jim adding the clecos.
Bang! A big step forward toward a completed airplane!
