Task: Assembled Left HS
Today I started by putting the 6 degree bend in HS-710/714
and both HS-702 forward spars. This required first trimming
the flanges on HS-702. I then got all the spars together and
marked them for the left or right side. I fluted HS-404/405/706/707/708
and attached them to the forward spar (HS-702) and to the
rear spar assembly (HS-603PP). Spar HS-404 required special
trimming and shaping to fit the -7. HS-710 and 714 lay beneith
the nose rib so it must be trimmed accordingly. I then slid
ribs HS-404/405 into position, clamped, and match drilled
the forward and aft flanges to the forward/rear spars. Once
that was complete I was able to match drill both HS-405/405
using the skin as a guide. I then match drilled HS-702 to
the skin. Finally, I match drilled all skin to rib holes in
preperation for AN3 rivets.
cleco'd to HS-702 with all bends complete.
Attached HS-601PP skin to the front and rear spars, and HS-706/707/708
ribs. I then placed HS-404/405 into place to be match drilled.
HS-702 has been match drilled along with HS-404-405
