Cowling Modifications 2009 Minimize
Fairly simple process if not time consuming.  I cut off the lower portion of the cowling and then used it as a mold to fill with expanding foam.  After removing the "mold", I fit the cowling to the airplane, and shaped the foam.  Then covered the foam with sheet rock mud and smoothed/shaped when dry.  Added a mold release and then fiberglassed.  Had to make "tunnels" for the exhaust and coolant lines the run down the belly.  I've not yet filled/painted but am flying with this cowl now.
