Default Rotax Cooling Shroud

I just started reading up on installing the cooling shroud on the Rotax and the instructions advise to mark the shroud at the four corners (no Problem), and then place the shroud in postion and mark locations of interference. Question, the trim lines are on the shroud, why not just trim close to those lines and quicken the process? What have others done?

Thanks,

Walt Shipley

It is a trial and error procedure. This is the one case where the scribes lines were either hard to follow or were not as accurate as the other fiberglass pieces.

After you are done paint it flat black and use high temp black atv. Much better looking.
