Getting back into it

Time: 5.5 hrs

Things done today:

  • Primed new parts
  • Test fit rudder assembly
  • Filed rudder pedal closing brackets
  • Prepped rudder pedal parts
  • Drilled out missing holes in floor skin for rudder pedal mounting channel

I’m using the rudder pedals with the toe brakes. Here’s some photos of the fitment of the parts. Seems to fit well, though the rudder pedal movement is a bit tight so had to file out the closing brackets a bit. I also had to drill out a few holes in the floor skin that are in the pedals assembly mounting channel and not in skin or at least don’t line up with it. It’s going to be a bit tough getting a few of these rivets in. I saw that Peter had to file down a manual rivet gun. I’ll have to stop by Home Depot and get a cheap one to destroy.

Just happy and excited to get back into building again.
