Well I messed up and installed the two outboard floor stiffeners backwards. I installed all four stiffeners with the flange of the angle facing to the outside of the fuselage. This is correct for the two in the center but not the other two. They should have the flange facing the fuselage centerline.
I first noticed this when the little notches in the center section covers were not in the right place. I sent Van's a little note and it doesn't matter I simply have to cut another notch in the covers but I thought that I would write a little note here so that maybe someone else won't make the same mistake.
