    I think I'm a slacker with photos , sorry about that. but here are a few, first the cowling holes done exhaust pipes would pass directly into them but in the end the original Dalotel used collectors for a single outlet center and under the fuse.
    The other photos are the setting up of the airplane in my little shop to mount the wings on both sides and do the incidence, not a one man job I assure you Oh and the propeller is from my friend in China Nanning Berno Technology Co., Ltd.

    left wing with proper incidence and with washout at the tip, not much wood to work with on the rear spar, so reverted to a bushing and fiberglass to give it some strength

    OK both wings are now with the proper incidence, not a small feat considering the size of my shop lol
