Stiffeners and steps
Catégorie: Fuselage : Center part

First I installed the stiffeners in the bagage compartment, one horizontally and one vertically.

Then I installed the covers, the one in the back will be riveted and the other will be bolted on to allow access to the flaps mechanism (the flaps tube will pass through the opening on the right).

Then I finished drilling all the holes on the forward fuselage, before beginning the steps installtion process. First you have to drill the mounting plate according to the template in the plan, and then backdrill the holes on the fuselage. Sabine gave a hand during the latter operation.

Here is the left side, the second row of rivets from the right seems slightly misaligned, this is to be sure the rivets are on the stiffener on the inside of the fuselage. The upper left corner of the mounting plate will be trimmed and twisted to folle the fuselage curvature. I still have to finish inside fuselage part of the step install.
