Deburring center fuselage parts

Category: Center fuselage — Steffen @ 16:51 — Hours: 5

Today I began the process of deburring all the center fuselage parts. First I had to make 4 small attachment strips for the baggage area corner ribs. I cut them from this piece of alu sheet.

Then I cut them to lenght…

…and made the final shapes.

After that I matchdrilled them to the corner ribs. The ribs had to be trimmed a bit at the rear ends, to clear the aft rivet hole.

Update!! I turned these the wrong way when matchdrilling. I redid them here!

Then I flipped the assembly over again and removed the bottom skin.

I used my soldering iron to remove the protection plastic over the rivet lines.

Finally I deburred all the holes and edges of the bottom skin. I also deburred the lower rib holes. It is much easier doing it while the assembly is clecoed together. I also modified the forward and aft flanges of the center seat and baggage ribs, to make room for the wiring snap bushings.

I began taking the center fuselage apart again, I will deburr the top flanges of the seat ribs before taking the rest apart.
