FAB Almost Done (finally)!
Wow...I was at the airport forever tonight and didn't get many pictures, but I did get the airbox pretty much done. When all was said and done I think it's sitting just a wee bit high, but that's OK. I have a spacer (about .2 inches I believe) that I can put between the FI servo and the sump. That should bring down the airbox to just about the perfect position. I have some gaps (for example around the flutes in the aluminum plate) that I need to seal. I may just mix up some flox and work it up in there. I think I'm going to prime/paint my airbox. With all the chopping I had to do to it I think it should be done. I'll get some high temp stuff today.
Before first flight I will need to build up the scoop extension back to the airbox and also install the 'seal material' around the airbox inlet.
