Trimmed firewall for gear legs

January 22, 2018 – One of the steps I accidentally left out of the previous post was trimming to clear the gear legs.

Because the gear legs attach to the engine mount, the firewall interferes with the legs at the lower outboard corners.

I marked the cut line as best I could, and started trimming with a rotary file, then a sanding disc. Looks good now; I may need to make final adjustments when the gear legs are installed.
