Default Baffles in RV 7 0-320-B2C conical mount

Hello folks

I am installing my baffles and found that the Vans kit accomodates Dynafocal mounts and my Conical mounts wont let the rear bulkhead sit flush with the engine.

Vans say that i need to modify and wondered if any of you have done this and what tools you needed to do it with. I have Dremel, die grinder, files etc.

Thanks in advance for any and all help

Dave, I just finished fitting the rear wall of the baffles to my Conical mount. I made a cardboard template to replicate the aluminum and trimmed it until the cardboard fit the way I liked it. Basically I ended up with large slots in the baffle that slide in over the rubber Conical mount bushings.

I used my band saw for rough cuts and refined the shape with the die grinder and files.
