Brief Description: Completed firewall cross member installation
Practices cutting and fitting firewall cross members using 1x4 pine boards. Used a router bit on the Shop Smith to put notch in cross member for auxillary longeron. Vertical movement up and down cut an accurate notch.Because the firewall is 2" wider than plans, did not have enough stika spruce to cut out the second piece. Pieces in wood kit work for a 36" firewall, not a 38" firewall. Epoxied top firewall cross members in place. Requires using many long clamps.
