November, 2002

November 15, 2002 - 2 hours
Installed the flap actuator mechanism into the fuselage. Installed the static ports and tubing in the rear fuselage.

Flap motor assembly mounted to the fuselage

This is the outside of the Van's static port kit. This is the head of a pretty big blind rivet.

After driving the madrel out of the blind rivet I put the tubing over the back of the rivet.

This Tee ties each side of the static system together with the tubing that runs to the panel.

Finished static system. There is a problem with this... See here

November 17, 2002 - 2 hours
Installed all those bolts in the holes that are left in the spar for main gear mounts on the nose draggers. On the real airplane you just fill the holes with bolts. Also put the little clamps on the little pieces of tubing that hold the rudder cable on the back of the plane. Cleaned the shop up some.
