Build Diary 07-September-05

Finally finished painting the cockpit floor, stripped all the masking off this evening. Removed the masking from the firewall and front of spar. Looks nice now! Now reinstalling parts, started with rudder pedals and brakes, then fitted the flap control bar. I won't be fitting the instrument sub panels yet as I need to do some riveting on the firewall and the fuse side skins.

Padals back in....

Fitting the flap control.

Note the position of the strobe pack cover screws. The flap control must not get in the way.

Canopy release.

I put this tape on the rollbar to protect the paint. Obviously the canopy needs some adjustment! I will investigate whats caused these marks.

The canopy release.
Centre of flap control, the motor will be fitted here.
