Brief Description:  Tube Frames and Baggage Floor

I'm taking my time on this part of construction. It's fairly tricky through here, and it was a wise move on Zenith's part to figure out a better way to do it. I ended up making another front tube frame gusset because I drilled and trimmed one upside-down. Easy to do, so make sure the large flange is on the bottom on yours (if you've got 'em). I finally started riveting the baggage floor in place too. It adds a lot of structural rigidity to the frame. I'm going to end up having to pull some rivets from the bottom because I can't get to them. It's better to rivet the side angles to the baggage floor THEN to the fuselage sides. I did mine the other way and can't get a riveter under the upper longeron, so from the bottom up it goes. Rookie mistake. With the tube frames in place, it's not much of a stretch to imagine the whole fuselage done. I'm gettin' there.
