Nicely done. Probably only you can eyeball the difference. Possibly better than making other side too big or way better than local pimple.

Time to make the part. Laid the carbon fiber on the mold and covered it up with a blanket. Put a heater under the plane as it was cold during the time this work was done.

Time to make the hole way bigger before we fix the issue.

A few clecos to clock everything in place.


Using the blue tape to mark the cut line.


The new part is not that much wider (shown by the drill bit) but just gives enough room for the valve cover and engine plenum to move.


Time to cut the old stuff out.




Cover the hole with the new part.








Will body work the part later. It is flight worthy.
