Time: 2 Hours
A couple of items that needed finished before the final mounting of the skirt mounting. First was to address the haps that end up between the inside of the skirt and the frame. There is just a gap on the vertical parts of the frame. To fix this I used some quick setting epoxy to glue some washers in place.
The second task was to adhere some felt strips around the bottom edge of the inside of the skirt. This will help seal up the canopy to the fuselage and reduce air from coming in while in flight. I borrowed the felt from Glenn and cut strips around 3/4″ wide.
Hopefully this will help with the cold air coming in. We will see once we finally get in the air someday and will add more if needed.
