Pitts cowling mounted, battery cover modifications
I did a slight mod to the Pitts battery cover: A magnet, 10mmx3mm was mounted flush-wise to the 10-o'clock position as viewed from the front. The magnet holds a small 4-40 socket screw that was mounted in the middle of the front battery cover rib.
This holds the cover with a SNAP! and is just tight enough to prevent the cover form flying off. Mine was pretty good anyway, but I wanted to make sure before placing the cowling on. Now, the cover is as close to ideal as I can get it!!
Just trimming the final bits off the Faux-Radial plate, then gluing to the cowling.
