Finished match drilling empennage and gap fairings. Drilled and tapped longerons for 6-32 screws.
Trimmed empennage gap fairings and applied micro.
Edge prepped canopy latch brackets.
Added fiberglass lenght to bottom empennage gap fairings.
Cut out stainless firewall foil for engine mount.
Final sanded canopy frame. Began sanding empennage fairing.
Added micro to empennage fairing. Like frosting on a cake.
Spent some off the clock time sanding out some scratches where epoxy made its way onto the canopy bubble. Highly recommended adding packing tape to the front end before floxing.
Trimmed and sanded left and right lower HS farings to final shape.
Decided to reshape the front of the empennage fairing. The hard part about drawing lines on a curved part is the lines tend to be more or less curved. It’s close enough now.
Finish glassing canopy frame stiffeners. Fabricated forward stiffener tie and riveted ties to frame.
Fiberglassed canopy frame aft bulkhead and stiffener bottoms.
Fabricated aft doubler to secure stiffener to F-809 bulkhead. I have read of a couple RV’s with this stiffener have developed cracks. Very slow progress due to working in the confined area of the aft section. Began fabricating forward doubler.
