Started getting some of the baggage compartment walls ready to install.
Installed another support under the baggage compartment for my fuselage wiring run. Rivted in the two side walls and the two floor skins of the baggage compartment. Started installing the rear baggage compartment bulkhead walls.
Drilled the baggage compartment bulkhead covers, and made the little plastic wear guards for the shoulder strap anchor cables.
Finished riveting the nutplates to the baggage compartment bulkhead. Removed the top skins to get ready for dimpling. Started installing the nutplates to the removable baggage compartment sidewall.
Installed the forward baggage compartment side covers. I put in a bracket for the front end of my fuselage wire run conduit similar. It comes out right behind the forward edge of the non-removable seat skins. Installed the hinges to the bottom seat skins and riveted the seat skins to the fuse.
Installed the forward seat panels and fabricated the tunnel cover that goes between the seats.
Started building the seat backs. It's taking longer than it should because I need a bandsaw blade.
Still building seat backs.
Finished fabricating and fitting all of the seat back parts and started deburring, dimpling and preparing all of those parts for priming.
