Fuselage 12 (3.0 hrs)


After a ton of deburring and cleaning up in the last shop session it was time to dimple many of the parts for the floors of the cockpit. For the floors I needed the c-frame to dimple many of the areas. But for the other parts the hand held tool worked just fine. After I completed all the dimpling it was time to turn my attention to the front cockpit side consoles. On the left (shown below) the fuel selector valve will be fitted.I needed to fit the cover plates in place and drill the auxiliary longhorns for the nut plates that would hold the outsides of the cover plates. Not shown, is marking the hole for the fuel selector valve. Drilling of the nut plates was straight forward.
