Fitting the Cowling Pt.2

I leveled the middle portion of the firewall(front to back, side to side), then drew my level horzontal split line. Be careful not to over trim, especially at the front inlet.
Side and bottom plates getting fitted. (Drilled, Deburred, and Countersunk)
Right Inlet Ring. After a lot of trimming, the right ring fits well. I over trimmed the inside portion of the left inlet, so I will need to do a small repair soon.(not shown)
Here you will notice the vertical trim line I drew on the aft bottom cowl. Use an Ultra fine sharpie marker for all marks on the cowl.
Firewall all clecoed up. Some fine tune sanding going on with the horizontal split line.
