and finally make some adjustments with Kapton tape. Kapton because I have it and I am cool. No, really, it is just a tad thicker then scotch tape and I like yellow...

For those of you familar with the IFO, the GWS motor is attached using nylon tie wraps. I will use two tie wraps to attach the aluminum mount to the carbon fiber fuse of the Mini IFO. More pics when the plane is done. And maybe pics of my wife when she finds out she no longer has a bead reamer!
