Spinner, Part 2

With the cowling done (for now), I could remove it from the fuselage and begin fitting the spinner. There are 12 bolts that hold the spinner to the back plate. When fitting the spinner,
I used small clamps to temporarily hold it to the back plate, then cranked the engine. I kept adjusting the clamps so that the nose of the spinner didn't "wobble". To check for "wobble",
I used a pointer that was magnetically attached to the table of the bandsaw.

Total Time: 10.5 hrs.
