Another way to do the hinge pins for the cowl sides is to run the hinge pins in from the cockpit and fasten them in the cockpit. It doesn't work on the RV-4's but is great on side by sides.

Looking Good :) :) Get the Canopy done and then you should be ready to start on the engine & firewall forward. Be sure to install your shoulder harness cables before you rivet the aft skins on the fuselage. Also don't install the boot cowl before you get all your engine connections made. I would...

It was interesting to note that one of the pilots was featured drinking Co cola out of a can because he was planning an eveni...

You could get them in green, red or white at that time. I didn't have a baggage compartment light. I car...
