I am building a VANS RV-4 aircraft. If your not involved in homebuilt aircraft it wont be too interesting, but if you are a part of that elite group it just might be. My intention is to include ONLY the interesting details, so the rate of change will be quite slow!

A final check to be sure all the pins go in and out OK

This is probably the final time I will assemble the front end fiberglass parts before she gets painted. Since they are not lubricated I was pleased with how well the cowl pins went in. The chisel point that VANS recommend, on the pins, is an important tip.

The curvaceous look has grown on me as the cowl has come together.

The cowl cheek extensions are held on with Sikaflex and rivets.

On the far side you can just see a black box the fuses slide into. Remember to put the nutplates on the outside, before you install the cheek extensions, if you want to do things this way.
