Z-Bracket Drilling (Fuel Tanks)
1.8 Hours

Previous - Index - Next

I worked on preparing the Z-brackets this afternoon using Dan Checkoway's improved method. I marked for a center hole on each bracket, drilled that hole to 3/16", bolted the Z-bracket to the spar using that hole, back-drilled the other two holes, deburred, and installed nutplates.

I'm short four nutplates and a few bolts (I've thrown away quite a few after using them for other things--Van's didn't short me), but I can continue the process using only the 2 outside bolt holes for now.

Today happens to be my the fourth anniversary of our wedding, so obviously I had other priorities this evening. :)
