Bad “Boot Cowl”

Well its obvious that the Boot Cowling took a lot of damage during the groundloop in 1987. The side skins have been patched at the bottom and there was a lot of bent metal.

Today I started taking off all the various pieces so I can get this estimated for repair.

I think I can get the two side skins cut locally for far less that Univairs cost of $280 per side. The two smaller side pieces on the bottom of the “Tunnel” are only $85 each and I think that may be worth it because of the bending required to remake them. I am also missing the tunnel cover and its $160 from Univair.
