Baffle Seals Done
Tonight I got a good bit done on the baffles. I got all of the seal material installed. It took a little while but it's now done. I'm pretty happy with how it came out. Hopefully it'll seal up and cool the engine properly. Only time will tell.
I am going to add a bead of high-temp RTV between the seal and the baffle material all the way around. There are some places where the seal material bulges out between rivets and I would like to close that up.
And here's a closer shot of the left inlet, for whatever it's worth.
In other project news, it looks like I'll probably be moving to the airport next weekend (the weekend of SnF). That is, if I can get some folks to help. Most pilot folks around here that I know go to Sun-n-fun. I really wanted to go but I'm more concerned with getting the airplane finished. I'm DEFINITELY flying there next year unless some unforeseen circumstance arises.
