Today I've made a few L brackets and match
drilled them. Don't have any pics.
I'm drilling the landing gear supports. I
drilled one and fit it inside the fuse. Then
I drilled the second one and realized I
could just match drill them all together
instead of marking each one. So there are
three here being drilled.
The one on the bottom is finished. The
others still need to be match drilled in the
fuse. The two top ones also need the corners
rounded and the edges sanded smooth
(something most builders don't do!)
This is the right side, but both the L and R
side are 100% done! All holes are drilled to
size and everything is match drilled to the
fuse. These two steel parts are ready for
sand blasting. I'll save them for later
though as I'll take the rudder pedals and
other parts at the same time.
While the fwd fuse is clecoed together, I
thought I'd prepare these door seal
stiffeners. They come with the one bend in
them (see bottom piece in pic) and it's
required to make two more bends.
You can see here how it fits on the door
The aft end sticks out so it will need
Here's what it looks like after the edge was
To make the bends I placed the piece in a
vise and made sure it was 90 degrees to the
jaws so the bend would be straight.
Holes are drilled at 30mm spacing.
I still need to drill the forward holes yet,
but I'm off to the EAA chapter 113 meeting
