This method is simple and effective. Mount the cowl as usual with those servo screws with the washers attached. Take the cowl off and drill the fuse at the mounting holes large enough to accept the yellow inner nyrod.
CA the nyrod into the holes leaving it hanging out the thickness of the cowl.
Re-drill the cowl holes the size of the nyrod so it fits easely. Put the cowl back on and it will practicly stay in place by its self. Screw the servo screws into the nyrod and voila. Vibration dampeners and nylon screw locks all in one.

Cowl Mounting

Microfasteners now has rubber backed screws which work great for mounting cowls. I think they came with the Aeroworks Extra 260, right Randy?
I have used the inner nyrod method and rubber grommets on the cowl and never had issues. Cowl rings are great but technically harder to do, but I think they are the best method.

I really love horizontally split cowls on big gas engines since you can remove the top and work on the engine, carb, mounts etc.. without having to remove the spinner and prop (which is a pain when you have 6 prop bolts, nuts etc). However the trade off is complexity and more screws in the cowl to crack

well guys for the update
Its a one piece fibreglass cowl, so I went with the grommets and mounted like you would a servo, I guess once its fired up and flown the results will be in. but thanks for many other ideas in case this fails.
It wasn't a crash it was deconstruction for improving
