Short Description:  Tow bar attach point

I picked up a tow bar and hardware from the Zenith Open Hangar Days event in September. By default, there is no attach point on the nose strut, so as they say, "some assembly required". Put masking tape on the nose strut for marking. Drew a circumference 25mm up from the base and located points for the steel pin holes. Drilled the 1/2" holes and cleaned them out until the pin would pass through the nose strut. Removed the pin and located the middle. Drilled the pin through and through with 3/16" bit. Located the midpoint between the pin holes on the strut and drilled a 3/16' hole on the front. Inserted the pin and positioned it so the drill bit inserted from the front passed through the middle hole of the pin and touched the opposite wall of the strut. Drilled through the opposite wall, making sure the pin was centered the whole time. Cleaned up the holes and assembled using the provided AN3 bolt, washer, and nut. The bolt holds the pin in position and the prongs of the tow bar fit inside the pin. From what I can tell, the alignment looks to be dead on.
