I fitted the cowl to the firewall. I used aircraft shears all the way and it is a very good fit. The steering column is in and I trimmed the dash and drilled the cowl, so the entire assembly is now complete. That leave the inboard foot-well pieces and the foot-well firewall and the tin work will be complete. I am still debating whether or not to do the engine side covers.
Fit new cowl firewall and install steering shaft housing
