Default RVator 2007 4th Issue page 15

Looking for RVator 2007 4th Issue page 15.

Unfortunately RVator 2007 and later issues are not included in 27 Years of the RVator and this link to past issues on Van's website is currently broken: https://shop.vansaircraft.com/public/RVator.htm

Does anyone have the PDF file of that issue or can post the picture of how to cut the lower cowl to make it easier to remove?

Finn

Default Check e-mail

I tried sending you an e-mail through the VAF message system. I scanned it but don't have a way to post it on VAF.

Default Lower cowl

The lower cowl on the -14 came as pictured above. I often wondered what was the purpose of the missing angled area. Now I know “The rest of the story”

Here's how I came across it:

Posts #12 and #13.

Oh, and on the RV-4 it looks like I may be able to cut a larger opening for the gear sockets/legs, pull out the hinges, slide the cowl back and then down and out. Between the diagonal cut at the front and bigger gear leg openings at the rear, it looks like the lower cowl can be fit pretty tight to the spinner too.

Thanks Ray.

I asked for it because this is a temp thread that will be deleted after two weeks, I think.
