OK...onto something new. All other parts of this project are on hold for drying, parts, or needed a helper. I decided tonight was a good night to start on the Baffles. Baffles are used to force the cooling air from the front of the cowl through the cooling fins of the cylinders. Some say this is one of the more frustrating parts of the project. However, this is one of Van's newer designs which is supposed to be much better than the old kits they had. We shall see.

I started tonight with a quick part. I needed t deburr this and rivet on two doublers. As sad as this may sound, it was nice to debur and work with Aluminum again. Recently my life has been all about fiberglass, wire fitting and canopy fun.
