Tailcone skin

Category: Aft fuselage — Steffen @ 20:06 — Hours: 2

So, tonight I set out to get the tailcone skin trimmed to fit the tailwheel spring attachment bracket. I brought the drawing with me to work today and took a copy of the cutout template, so I didn’t have to use the original drawing.

I clecoed the template to the tailcone skin and trtaced the coutout to the skin.

After that I used the flycutter, sanding disc and scotchbrite disc to trim the opening to final size. It took a bit of effort to make it fit nicely.
