Hi Fiberglass Gurus;
Now the cooler weather is starting to move back into my area, I started to turn my attention to reading, staring and mulling over the cowl fitting on my RV-7A. In the photos below, I think I have the top and bottom cowl somewhat in the position to clear my Whirlwind GA prop spinner (3/16") and close to finished along the firewall. However, the seam line between the halves gets progressively wider (open) as it proceeds forward to the spinner. Here some pics of where I am now;
I will be using Skybolt VLoc system along the firewall and the cowl halves seams. Since this area needs to be pretty strong, what recommendations and techniques should I use to build up this area that would allow me to install the Skybolt fasteners and maintain the "flushness" of the cowl seams and the the firewall? Or please point me to some past/current posts that have covered this particular topic. I did find some topics by Dan Horton but I just can not get a handle on how to apply them to this situation.
