I missed something ?
An oil quick drain is a builders choice option. It is not included in the FWF kit (or detailed in the plans).

I am sure you are an expert at removing the bottom cowling, as you say, in 10 minutes. I would like to hear what techniques, steps, lessons learned you may have for re-installing the RV-14a bottom cowling. I have only 56 hours on my aircraft, and have had the bottom cowl off several times, however it remains to be a major struggle, to get it re-installed, even with two sets of capable hands. I know you probably have it down to a science. Thank you!
