Wolf air intake: how to mount?

OK, am going to attach a Wolf air intake onto the side of my wing. But while there are seven holes to put something through on it, am not sure how this is done on a real Wolf. Are there rivnuts on the wing? I can't see that it would just be screwed on with self-tappers. Any advice would be welcome. Any REMEs out there or anyone own a Wolf that can have a look for me?

Cheers,
John

Personally I would use M5 aluminium rivnuts. If possible find m5 aluminium fasteners to go with them. I'd also put a ring of self-adhesive closed cell foam tape on the surface facing the wing panel so that you don't have to over-tighten things and to prevent any rattles that might result.

Hey Andrew, nice to hear from you! I might be up in Ottawa with the 110 this summer again. Thanks for this, I too figured rivnuts would be the way to go. Where would you order them from?

Cheers,
John

Well; if you feel like coming up we can fit it at the same time. I get mine through a local supplier; but down there you should be able to order direct from McMaster-Carr (who won't take new Canadian customers). The Alu ones fit really easily and for low-torque applications they're great; just remember to use anti-seize every time you fit a fastener to them.

Fantastic, thanks guys. Diagram is great. Andrew, thanks for the offer, knowing me it'll still be lying around by the time we go to Ottawa so I will probably take you up on that!

Cheers,
John
