The z-brackets have not gone well. First, I moved the holes in the wrong direction for the in board brackets. I quickly ordered replacements from Van’s. Next, upon riveting the nutplates on, I discovered I was short! If only I’d known, I would have ordered those too. A previous error had forced me to use a couple extra nutplates, but even with those I would still be short a couple. I’ll admit, when I did inventory I didn’t count every rivet and nutplate… it seems I was not shipped enough. Oh well. I put a call out on Van’s Airforce and to some local builders to see if I can track some down in time for the weekend.
