Bulkheads a-plenty

Hours: 1.8 | Posted in Bulkheads

Drilled the snap bushing holes in the 705 bulkhead.  Then attempted to fabricate the hefty angles that reinforce the top of that bulkhead (providing a solid point for the canopy latch to anchor), but saw the need for a new hacksaw blade after a short while…  Pulled out the rest of the bulkhead parts all the way to the tail, and fiddled with them for awhile, fluting and clecoing, getting the picture of how they need to go together. Rough cut the center cutout from the 712′s, then marked & cut the aft tiedown bar before wrapping up.
