While I was at work today, I decided to post a picture of the hole I had drilled in the forward spar reinforcement just as a sanity check on the work. The hole is fine.
Fortunately, another member on Van’s Airforce noticed that the upper reinforcement angle was installed upside down. Yikes! So now I have my first part order from Van’s! Thank goodness they caught the mistake, I hadn’t even given note to the orientation of the piece beyond the alignment of the holes.
Starting a project like this can be a pretty emotional experience. Its like anything I guess. When you start something new there is a lot of apprehension.
