Task: Primed cabin parts
Here are about half of the parts to be primed.
first batch done. It was somewhat cooloutside so it took longer
than normal for the parts to dry.
are all the parts primed!
The last task for today was drilling the hole
for the ELT antenna. I got an idea off of VAF to put the antenna
on the rear side of the canopy roll-bar. I used my calipers
to measure the OD of the antenna and the OD of the BNC connector
and laid it out in CAD to make sure I had the proper spacing
in the F-757 bracket.
I drilled the center hole to 0.5" for
the BNC connector to feedthru. A lock-washer and nut will
secure the antenna to the bracket.
I drilled 2 3/8" holes in the bulkheads on the right
side to accomidate the snap-bushings for the ELT antenna coax.
