More part prep

Today, I sprayed the first coat of Tamiya Fine Surface Primer on the parts that were prepared yesterday.

Here is a test fitting, Engine cowl looks good from the back

This mating point where the side pods join the monocoque is always a problem. I think generally a builder has a choice of gluing the cowling on and having a curbside kit, or detailing the engine and leaving the engine cover off. This kit comes with a couple of tabs that should hold the cowl in place. Doesn't really work on my example. Since I'm going to be heavily detailing the engine, I'm going to cut the tabs off the cowl and fill in the holes in the side of the monocoque.

Here are more parts that have been prepped for primer.
