July 2008 Pictures
Had to cut a hole in the subpanel for the deeper SL-30 and GNS-430W trays
These ribs get cut off, otherwise they would end up in the middle of the Dynon displays. The panel will get supported in other locations.
Decided to cut in the ignition switch this morning. You can't just drill a hole because it's keyed. Lots of filing!
And today it's the Hobbs meter.
This is the forward part of the canopy frame
Matchdrilling the forward canopy frame joiner plate
Drilling the hinges to the forward canopy frame
And finally marking the hinges with the drill bit
These get drilled with a drill guide to make sure the holes are exactly perpendicular do the surface
Here it is with the hinge pins in
And now with the skin on
Throttle (Black), Prop (Blue), and Mixture (Red) cables
Pilot holes for the flycutter
Airspeed and Altimeter installed
Riveted joiner plate and hinges
Started laying out the sides and back of the canopy frame
That's a wrap for July. 1700 hours as of today!
