Fabricating a plug for a new snorkel. It will be removable to ease the difficulty of removing/installing the lower cowling with a three blade prop, and it will also house a custom FAB. I don't care much for the Van's FAB bolted to the bottom of the fuel servo. For experimental purposes, I am going to embed a copper tape VOR antenna in it and see how well it works since I already have the materials on hand. No big deal if it doesn't work well. I will just go with my original plan of an Archer style wing tip VOR antenna.

Removable scoop is a game changer. You will find that with a removable scoop that it will be rare that you will have to remove the lower cowl.

I agree Bob. I put one on my RV-10 and loved having it. I really enjoy fiberglass work also.
