I did an electric conversion on the cmp .50 size mustang with the same sort of motor mount arrangement. I found it to be a real headache to deal with. I felt to do it properly, there needed to be major reworking of the whole nose section. To just mount the motor directly to the front ply/fibreglass nose was awkward to do, and not overly strong. In the end, I told myself to never buy that style of plane again to do an e-conversion on. I'll take a plain old flat firewall to mount a motor to any day of the week. Having said that, I love the 109, and I hope this project goes well for the owner.
