Well done!

Looks like you are ahead of me again, I hope to pick up the pace somewhat in the coming weeks

Looks nice, did you have to do a lot of work to get that fit, or were the trim lines pretty close to perfect? One thing to keep in mind is that a small gap is a good thing to avoid chipping the paint when installing and removing the cowl...

The top cowl was mounted/unmounted about 40 times before I was happy with the fit and had the correct spinner space. I was a bit lucky with the bottom cowl, it only had to go on/off 7-8 times.

The trim lines on the top cowl were perfect to within 1/16 and the bottom was almost as good.
