Default Dang it, Carl!

... I forgot to do that offset trick.

Did so on the wingtip hinges to hide the eyelets from the gap, then turned around and mounted the FW/cowling hinges per plans.

Default Using screws

Does anyone have build pictures of the lower cowl installation using screws?

ACS specs say the ms20001p4 is .040 thick and the ms20001p5 is .051. I found another website that specs them both at .056. Is the ACS ms20001p4 really only .040 and if so is this thick enough for the bottom hinge. I am at the same place as the OP and am trying to decide which hinge to use.

Sorry, but that's funny. I suffer from the same level of OCD. You're probably going to redo your cowling hinges now, aren't you.

It's very tempting, Mike!

The grey goo (FireBarrier) that's cured all along the edges of my stainless steel and Fibrefrax will make removal and replacement something of an issue.

Is it possible to "relocate" the seam, by grinding back the aluminum a bit and adding fiberglass to your cowling?

Default Maybe.

At first glance that sounds easier.

Since I haven't yet fitted the cowl, and there's trimming to be done on the aft edge, I suspect there'd be no need to add any fiberglass, just trim less off. Probably 1/16" is all that would be needed to hide the eyelets.

One would have to mind edge distances on the rivets, and the neatness of the cut line. How good are you with a Dremel? Do ya feel lucky?

Yup. Depth control of the cutting wheel will be difficult for sure...
