Today I shaped the flox fillets around the cowl inlets. You grind through the fiberglass of the cowl into the flox to create a rounded inlet.

Next I added a fillet to the lower cowl inlets. The plans specify to just glob the flox on and hold it in place with peel ply. Instead, I built a couple aluminum sheet metal dams to mold and hold the flox in place.

A little duct tape holds them in place. Here is the flox flowed in behind the dams. I think this will produce a little cleaner fillet.
