How much Cowl Saver material goes above and below the rivets?
Why should I purchase the Cowl Saver Scoring Tool, P/N TOOL120, if the Cowl Saver material is already scored?

Which side of Cowl Saver goes against the cowl?
Why don’t we use pop rivets in P/N RIVET-KIT-2 instead of soft rivets?
Soft rivets are too hard on my hands to install, can you offer an installation tip?
I have a Cessna 185 with an IO-520-D, can I install this material?
I have a Cessna 182R with an O-470. My baffle seals do not mount on the metal shielding around the engine, rather it actually mounts in the cowling. Can I install this material?
Is Cowl Saver baffle seal material FAA-PMA approved or have an STC?
