I’ll try to limit the unseen stuff with some trial fitting of the lower cowl; but there are a number of good sized holes in that through which one can see some of the piping.

No problem, Shane. Thanks for looking.

Aha! Well said! Maybe that’s why I haven’t finished anything in so long: I reach a fork or an obstacle on the journey and just stop and pout instead of persevering forward.

Pix will be coming along in due time.
