Tonight I trimmed the aft of the intersection fairing. I am pretty happy with how it turned out.


However, ever since I sliced the fairing, it doesn't sir flush against the fuselage. One of the disadvantages of going third party...


Lots of gaps all over the place.


I want the fairing to overlap itself on the underside where I made the slice. You can see how I put packing tape on the aft section of the intersection fairing and glassed over it. My hope is this makes a nice lap joint. To keep the fairing in position, I drilled a cleco into the cowl. I also forced the lower portion of the fairing to sit flush with the gear leg fairing. My hope is the three layers of glass I put down tonight will significantly stiffen up the fairing.


I did the same to the other side. I am hoping my fit will be good enough where I will only need one attachment point here! Worst case, I want no more than two attachment points to hold this on. Hopefully it will all pan out.
