Riveted left cockpit rail to longerons.
Riveted baggage door ribs to outer skin. Fabricated lock arm and washer. Edge prepped and primed mid fuselage side panels, instrument sub panel, baggage door lock arm, and latch pins.
Installed landing gear brackets. Riveted forward fuselage skin reinforcement to skin. I shaved down a 3.5 rivet by a 32nd to achieve double flush.Match drilled fuel valve cover plate.
Primed forward upper skin and baggage door parts. Primed and painted landing gear brackets and tail spring.
Had to repaint the tail spring because the idiots at powder coat coated over rust. They lost my business.
Match drilled right doubler to right forward spar.
Cut rib flanges from stock.
Cut relief notches in forward spar and tapered flange ends. Removed inboard rib forward flanges and drilled new rivet holes. Deburred spar doublers.
Decided to dive into SB 14- 01-31 so that it is complete before mounting the stab to fuselage. The SB adresses cracks found in the forward horizontal stabilizer spar. The SB only requires an annual inspection for cracks. Since I am not yet flying I decided to complete the repair now so that I do not have potential issues later. Drilled out all necessary rivets. The reinforcement rivets on the front spar were the hardest and I elongated a few holes starting out therfore I will be replacing parts that are out of tolerance.
Match drilled, machine countersunk, and tapered sides of the instrument sub panel for Showplanes canopy.
