Fitted tank brackets, spacers and started rudder pedals

Continuing on with the F-902 bulkhead todays job was to fabricate the reinforcement for the fuel tank attach bracket.

First I found the fuel tank attachment bracket, put it in place and back drilled through the skin and one of the longerons.

Next I fabricated the reinforcement angles and spacers as per the plans and fitted those.

Finally I back drilled through the skin again and clamped the reinforcement in place with clecos.

I repeated exactly the same process on the other side.

With a bit of time to spare I located the rudder pedal parts and began laying them out ready for the next session.

That’s it for this week.
