Section: 45
Hours: 8

Sand, sand, sand, etc. Today I started work on the cowling. I marked and then laid out masking tape on the trim lines. I then used the Dremel tool with a cut off wheel to trim to within 1/8" of the tape. Then I used a long sanding block to sand the parts down to the tape line.

When I cut with the Dremel tool, I always anchor the part to the table with clamps to keep it stable. I also run the shop vac while cutting to collect the fiberglass dust as it is generated. I hold the vac hose with one hand and the Dremel with the other. Nothing worse than fiberglass dust all over the workspace...

One corner of the center ring of the lower cowl gets a 45 degree cut.
