Task: Fabricated F-782D and worked on the
I fabricated the F-782D angle support for the forward kick-plates.
The QuickBuilders installed 4 other brackets on F-704 but
left these ones for the builder to fabricate. They are right
in front of the F-704 wing spar and in front of both seats.
The fuel supply lines go through these plates and into the
fuel valve cover.
F-782D angle supports on the lower right. This part will be
the end support for the forward covers. The F-7114-L gusset
shown (light gray part) does not fit quite as advertised.
Both sides are about 1/16" too far inboard. I need to
call Van's on this one. The Quickbuilders did everything in
this area so I had no control over fit.
finished up the F-768D seal supports. They took a lot of work
to get to this point!
found the correct angle stock and fabricated the reinforcement
angle for the seatbacks. We plan on using the Classic Aero
Interior seats which do not require these seatbacks, however
I've heard it is a good idea to make them anyway as the fit
is a lot better when wearing a parachute.
I measured, marked, and drilled several of the corner holes
in the F-637A seatbacks.
