Rear Bottom Assembly

Time: 1.5 hrs

Things done today:

  • Test fit parts for rear bottom assembly
  • Bend tight fitting flanges on Ribs 1 Left and Right

 

I was able to re-bend the flange a bit by using a large clamp (and a cloth so it didn’t scratch the metal). Then I pushed down (and around) and also pulled down on the clamp handle to move the flange bend a little bit back. The flange then just needed to be bend back straight. The part still fit pretty tight, but at least the rib wasn’t bending and everything seemed to line up well.

 

Here’s it is all assembled (temporarily). Still need to clean and prime everything. Yes, my garage is a mess.
