Task: Started fabricating seat back supports

After spending some time locating the F-705J angle, F-705K plate, and F-705L shim, I cut the parts into two 16 1/4" lengths per the plans. I then located center on the F-705L shim and drilled one hole about 1/4" in from one end. I We then clecod the shim to the top of the F-705 channel and back-drilled all the holes. Next we put the prescribed 4 degree bend in the F-705K plate, measured 11/16 from the front edge, and drilled to match the F-705L shim. We then clecod the plate to the shim to the channel. I was able to nearly finish the right side.
