Carbon Fiber Cowling for my ULPower 350is powered STOL CH-750

I was told my cowling is the third one off the molds from Aviation Composites.  I'm starting this thread to show chart my progress with installing it.

The AerThe AERO-Classics LTD Engine Oil Cooler looks like its going to fit better than the factory supplied oil cooler. (P/N 8000081, 10 Row Drawn cup)  I got lucky and found this one new in the box on Ebay.

Hello Timothy: I like your carbon fiber cowl. What is the weight difference between the Zenith cowl and the Aviation Composites cowl? How well does it fit (right out of the box)? Can you provide contact information for the person you dealt with at AvComp? What sort of lead time did you experience in obtaining your cowl? Biggest question - Cost?   Richard Kaczmarek

I haven't put my cowling on the scales. But when I first saw photos of this design on facebook, 12 pounds was the number quoted.   I don't know what the factory cowling weighs.  I had Zenith delete it from my FWF order. There's a lot more work getting this to fit versus the factory cowling. 

$1200 plus LFT motor freight shipping.

Thanks for the prompt reply, Timothy. Please keep us posted on your cowl fitting process experiences. I'm not even close to that part of my build, but I'm a firm believer in learning from the experiences of others - both good and bad! Thanks again.
