This works great. Drill your holes for the cowl large enough to accept a peice of nyrod. Glue the nyrod in to the fuse but leave it long enough to go through the cowl flush with the cowl outside. This practically alows the cowl to stay on with no screws. Use servo screws to hold the cowl on. Nyrod works like an anchor and fiberglass cowl anti friction device.

Hey, the nyrod idea is a cool one, I'll try that on the next one.

Hey Wayne, the Nitro bobcat is almost done, I have another night or two on it and should be flying early next week. Then its onto that Cermark F-16 prop job. It's almost done too, but I think it'll be a couple weeks before its done.

Hey Buddy, thats a Kadet not an Extra!!!

I use hot glue, ducktape, 3 1/2" ring-nails and some rubber bands.
Did you hear about the man that fell into the upholstery machine? He's fully recovered.

Lots of good ideas
Here is another idea that I have been using on my H9 Edge540 with a ZDZ40 and a Beaver with a Zen23 and my Extra with a 120 4c they never came loose.
Drill and tap the blocks and put some masking tape on the blocks to give the cowling more friction.
