Brief Description: Finished steps, continued on upper fuselage panel
30-4, Steps 1 & 2
Bolt the WD-1007-L Step to the WD-1008-L Mounting Bracket. I also used inserts from Bob Newman at www.tcwtech.com to prevent crushing the step with the bolt. Hopefully this would keep the step nice and tight.
30-4 Completed per plans.
31-6, Steps 1 & 2
Cleco the Sub Panel/Fwd Fuselage Rib Subassembly to the forward fuselage. Final-Drill #30 four places F-1068B-l to F-1002-L and four places F-1068B-R to F-1002-R.
Rotate the F-1 0448 Angle on the cleco holding it and the F-1044C Spacer to the F-1044A Fwd Fuse Rib until1he forward tab of the angle rests on the upper surface of the F-1001B Firewall Upper Angle. Adjust the bend angle of the lab on the angle if/as required to rest flat on the firewall upper angle.
Match-Drill #30 and deco the angle and spacer to the fwd fuselage rib in two places (once in the middle of the angle and once in the forward end of the angle) using the holes in the fwd fuselage rib as drill guides.
Match-Drill #30 upward through the pilot hole in the upper surface of the F-1001-K Firewall Recess, through the pilot hole in the F-1001-B Upper Firewall Angle and into the forward tab of the F-1044B Angle.
Cleco the forward tab of the F-1044A Angle to the upper firewall angle
Steps 3 & 4 aren’t applicable since I’ll be using an Aerosport Carbon Fiber Panel.
