This month there wasn't much physical progress on the plane but more of wrapping up loose ends and securing the front portion of the aft fuselage. I was able to finish the forward supports on the turtledeck and attach the mounts for electric flap actuator, and finally complete the very aft portion where the skidplate attaches to the fuselage.
Today I started on fabricating the longerons for the forward fuselage (cockpit) and damn is that 1/8" thick aluminum hard to work on. The directions were a little confusing at first but I was able to visualize how to essentially turn 1" square tubing into a L shaped longeron on the ends. A lot of work, but looks really cool and is extremely strong. More pictures to come as I work on the firewall and cockpit this month. The engine mounts are still backordered but I did receive a new glare-shield and canopy that were both damaged by XPO. Sonex customer service has been fantastic!!
