Finished Drilling Panel Reinforcement; Subpanel Stuff
Today I finished drilling the panel support to the panel. Here you can see it sitting in the fuselage. There's a slight problem here in that the pre-punched screw holes do not line up with the holes in the ribs. The panel seems to be sitting a little too high. There appears to be no mention on the plans of trimming down the bottom corners of the panel to allow it to sit lower, so I'm not sure what to do here. My main concern is that moving the panel will cause something else not to line up (the air vents and assorted parts, for example). Maybe this will straighten out when I cleco on the forward deck skin.
Anyway, I started fitting and drilling the various parts to the subpanel.
