Gussets and brackets

Category: Forward Fuselage — Steffen @ 20:56 — Hours: 4.5

Yesterday I removed and deburred the aft deck parts.

I also matchdrilled the aft bulkhead to the deck.

After that I dug out and the  F-757 plates…

These plates need a square hole for the canopy latches.

Today I clecoed them in place, marked the holes and drilled them.

Next up was the longeron to firewall gussets.

These needed a little trimming and shaping to fit nicely…

…much better! 🙂

Some of the holes are drilled with #40 for now, I will borrow the rivet spacing fan from work tomorrow to drill the rest.
