Today we installed our tail wheel spring bracket, and the diagonal in the top of the cabin.
Today we were lucky to have sunshine and temperatures around sixty degrees. With a cold front approaching we had to hurry to get the landing gear fittings installed. We tack welded the last fitting in right as the temperatures started to drop. Jim notched the seat back so the seat snaps into place.
We also received two of our engine cases from the machine shop.
Today we started drilling holes in our landing gear fittings using our drill guide.
We put brass tubing in the 1/4" holes in the guide allowing us to use a 7/32" drill bit to drill the holes. After drilling the holes we will ream them to 1/4". Our drill guide works okay but we feel improvements could be made. I told Jim that the landing gear fittings would be the most difficult part of our build, now he believes me.
