Been moving right along with the firewall today and I was able to fabricate
all brackets, spacers and final drill everything. Also alodined and primed.
Waiting for the primer to dry (epibond epoxy primer) which is off white,
great color for the interior, I pressed on with drilling the center section
spacer rivet holes. So what I did was inserted all 4 NAS bolts in place
using some chain wax and clamped the spacers. Drilling approx. 1/32" I removed
them to finish using the drill press, this is not required but I have one
at work I can utilize so why not. In addition drilled the 5/8" bushing holes
for the rudder cable grommets, and finished the day final drilling for the
control stick linkage attach brackets, and marked them for the optional
trimming for weight reduction.
