Brief Description: R. pant-add nutplates, rivet U808 bracket
I sanded inside the pants all of the areas where I had applied flox yesterday. Then, I applied a thick mixture of flox on the inside of the left pant (front half) where it butts against the U807 bracket—this attach point needed some extra build up to fit flat against the bracket. While the left pant was drying, I match reamed #30 then removed the right pant and the U808 bracket from the axle nut. I cleaned up the bracket and gave it a shot of primer. I countersunk the glass on the pant, then, squeezed in the four rivets that attach the pant to the U808 bracket. I drilled the holes to #27 where the front and aft parts of the pant are joined. Used a nut plate jig to drill #40 holes for the -3 rivets to attach the K1000-6 nut plates. Countersunk the holes, then squeezed in the rivets to attach the nut plates—7 nut plates, 14 rivets. I also need to countersink the front half of the pant for tinnerman washers.
