Nacelle building and engine mounting starts with parts that are not on Don Smith plans

First step is making firewalls by tracing cowls on 1/4" aircraft ply

Carefully mark: Dead Center Lines, both horizontal and vertical. These will be critical later for alignment

I mount Saito .91 engines at 40 degrees from horizontal. That makes starting and adjusting easy
