Spent a few hours at the hanger tonight and riveted the SkyBolt/firewall/sideskin assembly.
The SkyBolt install is complete. Cowling seams are tight. Huge thanks to my father who spent a couple days assisting!
On to the baffles!
Cheryl helped me all day on the airplane! We got a lot done. Cheryl sanded down the leading edge of the canopy to prep for the fiberglass fairing. She then filled the edge with epoxy and micro balloons.
We modified the lower rudder cap to clear the tail spring and added some fiberglass reinforcement.
I installed the center console to prep for running the throttle and prop cables.
I also installed the lower exhaust.
Last, I added the heat control lever.
