Pics of Me Working
Saturday April 3, 2021
The weather is improving and I no longer need to park my car in the garage to avoid snow storms, so it's airplane building time! I got the fuselage down out of the rafters yesterday.
Today, I worked on the crotch strap brackets, which I had started a long time ago and never finished. I stared at the seat pans and the bracket instructions for a few minutes.
I had already drilled the holes between the brackets and the seat ribs, so I cleco'd the brackets in place with a 1/8" spacer between them and drilled the holes from the seat pans into the bracket flanges.
Then I debur'd, prep'd, and primed all four of the brackets.
I installed the eight nut plates.
And then blind riveted the brackets in place between the seat ribs.
My blind rivet tool fell apart at one point and I had to figure out how to reassemble it, which took a little while.
These brackets serve as a point to bolt the crotch portion of the harness.
