Brief Description: More pass side fwd fuselage work
Removed more powder coating - done with the rudder pedals now.
In no special order, I did a lot of little things and completed a major subassembly.
I had marked-out and pilot drilled the seat base to align with the sliding seat option forward and aft supports. Up-sized to #20 for A5 rivets. Up-drilled the 4 seat adjuster mounting spots to 5/16", then added another 1/32" to allow easier bolt pass thru so they will insert into the nutplates easier. That's just in the seat base. The seat supports were kept at 5/16".
Positioned and drilled the nutplates, and riveted to the seat supports. Put the seat base back in place and temporarily mounted the seat support sliders They fit!
Up-drilled a lot of the L-angles to #20 size for A5 rivets. Up-drilled the lower mounting flanges of SSO-1 & -2, the seat supports. Updrilled the double row of holes for the outer longerons.
Cleaned it all up and rotated the assembly so that work may begin on the left/pilot side of the fwd fuselage.
