Here we’ve duct taped the upper cowling and sanded the wing surfaces down to the glass where the cowling meets it in preparation for the cowling flanges. This is a 5 BID layup that I wetted wing and the upper cowling, then wetted the glass out on plastic and folded in half and laid on top of the wing, set the upper cowling in place, and unfolded the layup onto the cowling. After cure the flange is trimmed back and the screw holes are piloted and clamped with clecos.
