Task: Finished seat backs - Continued work
on forward deck
I finished the seat backs! I rounded the corners on the top
reinforcement angle so that it can nest in the top bent part
of the seat and then mark and drill the holes along it. I
also drilled the bottom hinge in place and then opened all
the holes to #30. My cleco clamps were put to good use again.
They work really well for holding hinges in place.
The seat backs are done! They look great in the fuselage!
I had a little extra time tonight so I decided to drill the
seal supports to the left and right outboard sub-panel. I
first made a template with paper and a pencil. I traced the
curved edge onto paper and then marked in 1/8" every
few inches. I moved the sub-panel down and drew another curved
lne. I cut it out, placed it on the sub-panel, and then placed
the seal support on the 1/8" offset mark and drilled.
This method worked like a charm!
I then repeated for the other side.
Seal supports drilled #30 to both left and right sub-panels.
Lastly I fabricated the center sub-panel seal support and
drilled it into place. This one was substantially easier since
it only had to be fluted for the minimal curve.
