Brief Description: Fit baggage floor, prepped top forward skin
Started connecting wiring for the red cube, but ran out of shrink tubing, so I installed the F-899-1 forward baggage side panel. Then I installed the F-870-1 forward baggage floor—didn’t fit very well due to the way I ran the cable for the heat valve. So, I cut the ends of the F-8700-1 stiffeners to a 45 degree angle and that was enough to let the floor lay flat. I dimpled the F-821-1 forward top skin where it attaches to the firewall, then used a machine counter sink on the F-821C-1 forward bagged support strip. This will not require the firewall to be dimpled and the cowl hinge not to be counter sunk. I installed the top forward skin and then placed the windscreen in position. I drew a line around the outside of the windscreen, then removed it. I laid out a couple of circles on the skin where I intend to install some sort of vent to help with heat from the radios and EFIS as well as providing some heat to serve as a defroster.
