The building of a Vans RV-14
Another 3 hours of dust
46 Gear leg fairings
And it continues with more fiber glass trimming, I hate all this itching dust!
Done with section 45, Cowling
46,9 hours! Another builder who I have followed did it in 24,5. In these hours I have not counted my lite fun painting project. The result can be seen below:
Trim for paint
Heartbreaking to trim the cowlings that had such a great fit but any paint would chip at first engine start as it was so I have trimmed them. A picture of a lot of today's work, finding parts.
Decided to follow the plans for now. The wing nuts for the oil door will probably be replaced with something else after a year of flying.
Inlet ramps done, starting on oil door
Inlet ramps 3
More glass/epoxy to be able to make smooth transitions.
Inlet ramps 2
Cowling inlet ramps 1
Yesterdays session, was to tired to blog last night.
Nut plates and hinges
Some nut plates installed and I have almost finished riveting the hinges to the cowlings.
Another day with cowling work
Pictures not in time order...
Plenty of pictures, much work.
