It's one piece, with a notched bottom to set the gear into the fuse rather than just bolted on the very bottom.

No, it's a one piece Gear. The bolts that I will use will be Socket cap screws and will go in from the landing gear side.
Without the blind nuts, then you would need to use nuts in the pipe tunnel.

Now I see it was washers. In the picture on the first page it looked like the blind nuts were on the bottom hence why it had me thinking how it was going to work.

Oh, I see.

Those were fender washers I used to hold the balsa in place while the glue dried.

The picture on page one isn't that clear and it looked like they were blind nuts. It all makes sense now.

I got the cowl ring fit to the fuse and drilled a 1/4 wood dowel to aid in alignment. I used Hysol Epoxy to glue the cowl ring to the cowl. I set the ring 3/8 inch back so the cowl will overlap the sides.

the gear mounting area will be one of the few differences you will see Jerry do when compared to the stock setup. Traditionally the gear mounts directly to the angle aluminum and is not sandwiched by the wood like you see in Jerrys pictures in post #77.

We do recommend bolting the gear directly to the angle aluminium because over the years of using this mounting design we have found it to save a whole lot of airplanes if they have ever had the gear ripped out. If you do have an accident with the gear you are more likely to bend the angle aluminum and not hurt the bottom of the motorbox like you would if it were a solid wood structure. The nice thing about the aluminum angle is if you do have an issue you can go down to the local hardware store and get replacement angle with no problem.

What's Hysol Epoxy and where do you get it? Looks like your cowl is already painted as well?

Epoxies E-20HP and 9462 are the ones I use and HIGHLY recommend the use of surgical gloves when using this stuff too.

I wish I could get it up here. The one I have been using is the E-60HP. Seem sot work good. Extremely strong and bonds like there is no tomorrow. Also it doesn't run on vertical surfaces, stays where you put it.
