    Measure it with a micrometer, mark it with a grease pencil & cut it with an axe.

    Here is a pic of the left motor mount. Due to the shallow geometry of the firewall hardpoints, a truss style mount is required. Weighing in just under 10 pounds, I over-engineered the mount but am confident in the strength. It passed a 6 g load test.

    Just fabricated and installed landing light enclosure. Also streamlines upper portion of nosegear leg. Landing light is Aveo LED...very bright and low amps! Airframe just about complete...just waiting for engines and avionics. I am just starting to build the engines now and hope to have them installed late summer or early fall. Also taking advantage of the warmer weather to finish the filling and sanding of all the fiberglass work.

    Both engines have cases closed with ARP case studs with cam & crankshafts installed. Should have both shortblocks complete within next 2 weeks. Fifth bearings installed on both cases last week. Virtually everything other than the cases and head castings will be brand new parts.
