Doors, Torque Tube and Wing Tips

Last week I was at the Sebring Sport Aviation Expo but the usual suspects were continuing on the project.  Here is a catch up post to bring you up to date.

Just like every project, there is always a fair amount of head scratching involved.  One of the advantages of a group project is you can always talk it over with another builder.  Here Matt and Jerry try to determine the next step on root wing structure.

Tim helping Jerry work on the lock mechanism for the doors.  There are 3 latches that operated from the door handle.  It takes a bit of fiddling to get them installed just right.
