Brief Description: Bottom skin + forward cross ties
- Drilled pilot holes in lower forward skin, from previous pilot holes inside the fuselage (photo #1).
- Installed lower cross tie with pilot holes and clecos (photo #2 and #3).
Although I've drilled holes and pilot drilled for the lower forward skin, I only drilled about 20% of the holes; just enough to hold everything in place and aligned. Next I need to drill all the rest of the holes, including the bolt and screw holes that hold the forward and aft fuselages together. Then I can go to the next step which is the firewall.
Added holes and clecos between forward and aft skins
