Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
Well, here it is Monday and we are finally putting on the finishing touches to the last item in the project, the cowl. Kent took two days while I was away and worked on the air intakes, today we put the finishing fiberglass on the openings. Now all we need is to let the resin harden and we can do the final install.]
Installed the bottom section today and ran the wires to the oil pan heater and the battery maintainer, put the holding washers on the cam-locks in the lower cowl.
It dosen't look like we will be airborne before the airshow but will be finished enough to be on display. first flight will have to come after the show.
Now to make prep for first flight and flight testing.
Just noticed, if you look closely at the photos of the lower right side of the cowling in the photos section you can see the fairing that was done to maximize airflow around the exhaust and center strut, this will prevent a positive air pressure buildup on the inside of the cowl. I will take photos of the bottom later for a better view.
