Task: Forward top skin
After a week in Florida for the annual Sun n' Fun airshow
I was back at work tonight on the airplane project. Joe fron
Van's had a custom top skin made for me after we both determined
there was just no way the stock skin was going to fit (see
previous post in March). This one went on easily and I used
two come-alongs to pull it down tight onto the fuselage.
the skin was held down tight I match-drilled the firewall
flange and then back-drilled the horizontal holes along the
side skins and longerons.
the top skin is completely on and drilled! What a headache
the first one gave me!
