I will try to repost some of the pictures. Currently I am completing my new cowl. This has been a mammoth task so far, but I am slowly getting it done. Our national lockdown has put a lot of restrains to try and source materials and consumables, as we had a complete lockdown, including the sale of anything that are not deemed essential (including alcohol and tobacco products)

I'm in the same boat. Ran out of epoxy resin again for my new cowling (jabiru 3300 engine). I have 2 layers of cloth applied and 1 layer to go. I used beeswax 1/32 sheet from freeman to smooth out the mold and provide easy removal from the mold.

I am uploading some pics here as well.

These are pictures from the stripping process, some mods and recovering. I have also redone the panel and added some MGL glass. Once the project is done I will post before & after pics.

Old cowling mods to make new plug. I wanted to retain some of the classic sonerai looks, but also make something different. I wanted to have a kind of "turbine look", so I opted for this shape...
