Default Modified Cowl Ring

This is the final shape of the cowl ring before installation. Blind nuts are for hold down bolts, 2 required each side for 2 pc cowl. Ring is 3/16" ply, top holes are for hatch pins, bottom holes for lower hold down bolts.
Very EZ to do, just trace the outline of F-1 and the hatch. Continue to trim slightly for a perfect flush fit.
Cowl is joined to ring with 30 minute epoxy after scuffing and removing the mold release. Later, a light slurry of epoxy and cut fiber will be added for strength.
