Default SJ Cowl Question

taking a moment to ask if others have had this concern with the SJ Cowl. On the left side of the cowling the cowl extends out from the fuse about 5/8", on the right side it lays perfectly - yes it is centered. If you have done a SJ Cowl on an 8 is this something I just need to strap down and install skybolts or is this a concern? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Default Check clearance

Be sure to check your clearance on the left side before using hinges. Mine was actually in contact with Cyl #2 and I had to re-do it. All is well now and I have about 1/4" of clearance there,but it was a ton of extra work. I used the Dan Horton method and laid up the joggle instead of using hinges or the camloc mounting strip. I used nutplates on the horizontal interface to get the clearance. Hing eyes will eat about 1/16th. Do a search and you'll see my thread with pics, it was pretty recent, month or two ago.
