Cut the inlet nozzle to length and removed the styrofoam plug. I think this was a successful task, with no need to do it over. Smoothed the aft edge. It fits nicely to the airbox and now I can continue with that task. Should be DONE with the FAB by next week.
Two more cowling tasks to go - installing the milspec fasteners, and fitting the lower cowl exit reinforcment hardware. Well, that's not counting more filling, priming, sanding, and painting.
