Task: Forward top skin
After getting the top skin on last night I worked to finish
up the front deck this evening. I had to drill the F-743B
corner angle into place and then disassemble the whole sub-assembly
to be deburred.
the F-743B I removed the clecos from about half of the skin.
This allowed me to peel the skin up, insert and clamp the
angle, and then drill it to the F-743-1 and the firewall.
off the evening I fabricated 2 brackets for each side of the
panel-to-firewall ribs. Due to the proximity of the EFIS screens
and radio stack in the panel, there is no possibility those
ribs can remain in their default position. My idea is to drill
these brackets to the ribs now, cut the ribs off at the sub-panel,
and then move the ribs horizontally along the sub-panel to
set the position. I think it will work quite nicely and still
give the panel its needed strength and support. The angles
are 4" and 1.5" long with 5 rivet holes in the long
one and 2 in the short one.
