Sanded scarf joints and final trimmed empennage fairing. Sanded canopy forward edge I think I can call it done.
Layed fiberglass plies to bottom horizontal stab gap.
Fabricated taxi latch rod.
Marked seat back support for gas strut attach nut.
Fiberglassed forward lower side of empennage fairing.
Fabricated aluminum lock arm from .063 sheet instead of the metal arm to save some weight.
Drilled and installed taxi bracket.
Trimmed taxi striker bracket for proper spacing with taxi bracket.
Finished drilling mid bulkhead for latch rod pass through. Fabricated canopy latch rods.
Cut latch handle bushing groove to match shape of relief in latch. Trimmed cap bolt and cut latch pin rod to proper length.
Drilled pilot hole for mid cabin bulkhead latch pin. Continued trimming empennage fairing.
Installed frame blocks and finished step drilling forward and aft latch pin blocks. Rough trimmed empennage fairing. Bonded all bosses to frame.
Decided to make an attempt at building a fairing. The fastback has more of an angle so the stock fairing will not fit without major cutting. Applied 4 plies of BID fiberglass and then covered with peel ply. Just hope it will break free!
