Riveted/Epoxied Cowl Hinges
I got home late tonight but decided to bite the bullet and make some serious progress on the project. So I managed to get the hinges deburred and epoxied and drilled the hinges to the cowl halves. Then I slotted a slight notch in the forward sides of the cowl for the pin exit. I'm still not sure how I'm going to secure the hinge pins. I'll probably try to find some sort of little metal clasp that I can screw to a nutplate. I may also consider pulling the pins from the inside of the fuselage, but this is unlikely.
