The beginning of the end, of this project.

Today, the person who is making the cowlings for the UL Power 350 engine installations on the SPA Panther, Ray, came to my shop to conduct a test fit of the “splash” from the plug.  When building my KRs, I had to go from a cowling that was not necessarily made for the plane and engine, so had to do a lot of cutting and fixing.  This cowl could possibly be a perfect fit.  What a pleasure that will be.  I am expecting that it could be 2 to 3 weeks before the final cowl will be ready for me to purchase.  I also ordered the Whirlwind 3 blade ground adjustable prop and spinner from Ray.  These are the last of what I need to get this plane into the air.  Here is a preview of things to come.
