Brief Description: Added diagonal L angles to rear side skins
One of the optional features of the 650 was to add diagonal L angles to the rear side skins between vertical uprights. This is not a structural matter, but is primarily to reduce oil canning in the sunlight or in stall maneuvers. Because I had over ordered L angles, and because i want my plane to clearly be a CH 650 (not a 601XL conversion), I went ahead with that tonight. The pictures below don't show the diagonal supports well, mainly because I was running so low on bronze clecoes that I only put three (four max) per angle. That makes the shape hard to see. Tomorrow my EAA Technical Counselor, Gary Questa, will be coming over for a fuselage inspection. With that in hand, I can wrap up a few more loose ends and transition to riveting.
All buttoned up and ready for a tech counselor inspection tomorrow
