Today we fabricated the floorboard for the project (the front seat only). The Mfr provided AC Plywood for the floorboard However, the floor itself weighed 15 oz. Since our engine installation is just a tad heavier than the Rotax 582, we are trying to save as much weight as possible. We fabricated the floor board our of carbon fiber and fiberglass. It turned out quite nice and it is only 5.9 oz.instead of just under a pound. our panel will be made of carbon as well ( it weighs 1.3 lbs in plywood).
We pre cut every thing and prepped over the last several day getting knives material, supplies and work surface ready. form our start time to clean up it took us just over an hour. It has cured and is ready to install once we get back to the hanger. I will post another set of photos in another entry since Kitlog only allows 3 photos per entry.
Carbon Fiber laid out and cardboard template ready.
