The cowling mold has been lengthened and the new cowling's do not have a meal strip. I have deeded to change the cowling to the new one instead of trying to repair the version with metal strip embedded in the fiberglass. I will not be able to get this done before Oshkosh but it will be the the first job upon my return.

Mark I had to modify the  rad opening on one i got from the zenith fwf kit . just didnt seem to fit unless the prop was spaced out , and  the prop i have wasnt do you space your poprs out at all? 

also have a dydnon setup and was wondering what  or where you get an adaptor for the fuel pressure sending unit , comes with a NPT fitting and the tee on the rotax(where i seen it installed on the pics that Bob Mcdonald posted on here)  is metric, 10 X1.0 i believe
