Initial Baffle Fitting

Here are some pictures of the initial fitting of the Baffles..  The more I learn about these the more nervous I get.  I spent a couple hours on the scotchbrite wheel fine tuning these to get them to fit around the cylinders.  My understanding from here is that you trim and fit the cowling, then trim some more and fit the cowling and trim some more, until you get the nice fit you are looking for.  Also, I have the horizontal aspirated engine which looks good from the outside, but requires that I fit the air intake (AKA Snorkel)) into the front ramp of the baffles.  The front ramp fitting is supposed to be the most difficult..   So we’ll see how this goes.
