Where have the updates been??? Well, my schedule has kept me a bit busy on Wednesday evenings as of late, but fresh off a trip to Reno last week to work the races for EAA, I was able to get back to the build last night. I’ll start with what the dedicated build team did over the last couple of weeks.
The hole to mount the fuel sender was cut perfectly in to the right wing tank.
Last night we had a nice size work crew around to work on the baggage floors, and continued work on the fuel tank area of both wings.
There is always time for a group discussion to remedy a situation. In this case, baggage floor stiffeners were cut to appropriate length but still led to a minor problem with edge distance on two holes. The team decided a best route of drilling a couple of additional holes, and moved on.
Here’s a shot of the baggage floors cleco’d in place. It took a bit of finagling, but they are looking great now!
It’s been a great couple of weeks on the project, and there are some big milestones coming soon, so stay tuned!
