Trimmed the lower corners of the cowling attach strips. They were just not going to work as is, and will need some bending.
Then refit the lower cowl and upper cowl and marked the lower cowl for the initial cuts. Then drilled the first #40 holes in the upper cowl that should be the center for the fasteners. Oh yeah - ordered a firewall only set of MilSpec fasteners.

The canopy is setup nicely. I'll take all the clamps off tomorrow. This weekend I'll finish the aft canopy details.

And in more news, mailed off the FAA N number 8250-1 form and 15 bucks to start the registration process for N207LT.
