I have had a few requests for a template of the wing cut out to fit the RV-14 lens kit.
The following is all you will need.
First order the RV-14 lens and retainers (#nos in this thread )
Once you have the retainers, you use them to finish the radius at the top and bottom of the cut-out.
Using the dimensions above,mark out the top of the leading edge and then use one of the retainers to get the matching radius.
Use the same method for the lower cut out. I found using a square against the wing end was a great way to make sure everything was square and straight.
The cut was made using a thin disc metal cutting Dremel, an easy tool to control.
Finishing with a scotch wheel and then I masked up and painted the inside wing cavity.
I have been flying with these lights for over a month now and have been surprised by how many people come over after you land to comment how visible you are from soo far away.
Truly a great safety improvement even for day VFR
