Default Need Rascal 110 cowl measurements. Update: Measurements recieved

A few years ago I aquired a red Sig Rascal 110 that had been wrecked with the nose demolished. When I rebuilt the plane I set the firewall back 2" so I could use a heavy Ryobi 31 on that plane. It worked out perfect and the engine pulled the plane around real nice and I was able to conceal the entire engine inside the cowl since the Ryobi has rear eaxaust and carb. There was just enough pieces of that cowl that I was able to piece it back to together well enough to create a mold and if I had known I was going to aquire another Rascal 110 with the exact same front damage...well I would have saved that mold. I traded the Red Rascal off last year, but I quickly got to missing the Red Rascal 110. Well as luck would have it I just aquired a blue Rascal 110 with the exact same damage as the red one had. The nose of the plane was pretty much gone, but worse was the fact that I had no cowl pieces that came with this one to be able to creat a mold. SO if another Rascal 110 owner could kindly take some measurements for me...I would forever be gratefull. I almost have the front damage repaired and as you can see in the pics I have set the firewall back on this one as well to be able to use another Ryobi 31 I have. I am ready to start laying up a cowl now if I can get some measurements. I need the heigth and width at the back of the cowl and the heigth and width at the front of the cowl and the length of the cowl. The rest will be just connecting the dots. Thanks in advance!!!

Hey Frank

Thanks for the offer to help, but I went ahead and contacted Sig and Bob was great and gave me the measurements I needed. In fact I have allready started laying the cowl up. Thanks.

Thank you. I got it done and painted. It isn't perfect, but should work out just fine. 2 layers of 5 oz fiberglass makes for a pretty hefty cowl. It should definately be stronger then the original, but it is a good thing I am not looking for ways to save weight, because the cowl I made probably weighs twice that of the stock cowl.
