Fitting the Cowling Pt.5
Horizontal Hinge gets prosealed and clecoed up. I let the proseal dry before I did any riveting. Tip-Tape off the eyelets while applying proseal to the hinges. Remove the tape prior to clecoing the hinge.
Each hinge was flush riveted with 426 3-4 rivets. After riveting, I placed the pins in to check the fit. It's pretty tight, but I was able to get it in all the way. Tip-I rounded off the heads with a grinder and reamed the forward and aft holes with a long #40 drill.
