    The build is looking great! If you are going to drill & tap the motor mount, nylok nuts are not needed. If you need more "peace of mind" perhaps a drop of low strength (blue) threadlocker on each...

    I was wondering how much the .70 would stick out of the cowl, as it turns out not much. Even though I won't be building mine for some time as I am just getting started in...

    I need to solder connectors on the ends after cutting anyway so tinning will help when it comes time to do that.
