Trimmed/Drilled Left F-684 Gusset
This is the left F-684 gusset. This thing basically reinforces the juncture of the lower and aux longerons and the firewall. The grimy nonsense that you see on there is from duct tape on my bench vise where I clamped this thing in there to get some slight bends as per the plans. It took several iterations, but I eventually got these things to fit pretty darn well. This pictute is the bracket before drilling it.
And here's the gusset after drilling. I forget to mention above that I also spent a little while twisting the aux longeron a little more to get the fit as absolutely perfect as possible. I still need to do the right one...should be tomorrow.
