RV 10 with about 1000 hours. I noticed the inside skin of the cowling had buckled and came loose, away from the honeycomb.
It does look like the heat shield that I put inside worked as the delam stopped where it was applied. Not sure why I didn't go higher up the wall of the cowling...
My question --- Is there anything special about laying a new piece of "skin" over the honeycomb?
Obviously need to clean up the area, make sure to get back to solid edge, etc. but just wanted to check on laying over the top of the honeycomb.
I'm don't recall any instance of the engine running hot, etc. so not really sure what caused this but I'll also take the heat shield up higher on the walls when it goes back.
