Brief Description:  Upper cross member gussets and cross braces

Today I cut all of the gussets for my upper cross members. I also cut the rear cross braces for station L to K. I only did the one because I accidentally ripped out the J cross member when I was moving the fuselage back to the work shop. It definitely showed me the necessity for gussets. The joint is very weak without them. I sanded all of the joints where the gussets needed to be glued and also sanded down the excess glue at the longeron doublers. After that, everything was glued in and clamped.
