There is a template for cutting your cowling wing openings. I elected (foolishly) not to use this, since I knew from previous fittings that I wanted to move the cowling prop opening slightly to get a more even spacing around my spinner. DO NOT DO THIS, it is much harder this way, and caused me some rework (stick with me here). The mold makes the two pieces separated in the middle, this will be reconnected, and the cut line will be moved to below the wing for ease of maintenance.
