Zenith 750 Cruzer The fairing is 99% done as far as trimming. It looks fantastic on the airplane too. I don't log hours, but if I took an educated guess, I have between 50 and 60 hours into this fairing. It was a lot of work but so worth it! I would do it again.

Of course if I had to do it again, it would only take half the time now that I know what I'm doing.

   
Zenith 750 Cruzer Comes out to just under a pound. By the time it's primed and painted it will be right around a pound total weight.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer It fits so nice that I only need a few screws to hold it in place.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer I'm not exactly sure how I want to cut the back of the bottom. I drew the bolt, and I think I will make the aft end curved behind the bolt. So I'll drill a hole in the fairing which will go around the bolt head, then just curve the aft end.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer I might trim the top aft edge too so that it does not lay over the line of rivets holding the elevator hinge. So the aft end of the top and bottom may still get trimmed a little, but I'll let my brain think it over for a while. There's certainly no hurry to cut.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer What do you think? An extra 35 mph?? My cruise speed might be measured in Mach numbers!
