Front cockpit cowl

Had some time this afternoon, so I worked on the front cockpit cowl again. The strut cutout holes got some much needed attention with a file and sandpaper. Also sanded all the edges.

Lastly, in preparation for burnishing, lines were drawn across the cowl at 1 1/4 inch intervals.

Don Barnes sent me some really neat Jenny photos. He saw them in the Ryan Aeronautical Photo Collection @

Thought you might like them.

What is so unique about this photo is the OX-5 exhaust. Notice it faces forward! I wonder why?

Here is another view. Looks like they just took the exhaust and flipped it upside down and moved it to the other side.

Anyway, I like seeing old Jenny photos. Hope you do too. Thanks Don!
