Ek het 'n vel PVC gekoop wat ek wil gebruik om te dien as "mould" vir "fairings"
vir die "landing gear"

Ek het dit tot die naaste afmetings gesny en daarna gebuig.

Die plan is om dit nou met "release agent" te behandel waarna daar twee
lae 320g Bi-directional mat gelê sal word in die binnekant daarvan.

Sodra dit dan geset het dit uit te haal en tot finale mates te neem en
dan te pas.

Ek het die "moulds" voorberei en toe die veselglas "lay-up" gedoen.

Die plan het goed gewerk en ek het geen problem onderving om
dit "ge-release" te kry!!

Die olie pype wat langpad oor die motor geloop het is nou verwyder en word die korter
roete voor en onder die motor deur geneem.

Hoop om die tydelike pype nog vandag op te maak sodat ek dit kan ingee sodat die
finale pype vir VYX opgemaak kan word!!

Ek het nogal gesukkel om die "brackets" en olieverkoeller in die finale posisie
te kry!! Dit was veral moeilik om die olie pype bo op die olieverkoeller gepas
te kry weens die min spasie tussen die verkoeller asook die motor.
