10 April 05 - More Mapbox and Panel Stuff


Tonight there are a few things that we're trying to get done tonight - we're trying to get the cut for the map box done (it's taking a lot more time than I thought it was going to. Also, we're going to try to get the subpanel together. The parts don't fit together as is, there's some bending that needs to be done. We've tried to get it together before (without realizing that) and without that, it doesn't work very well.

Subpanel is together for the first time. Not anywhere close being ready to rivet, but this is the first time it's been together at all.

Hooray! This is done, after more time than we thought it was going to take. There has got to be a more efficient way to do this than with a dremel.

The position of the map box in the tipper means that some of the brace on the right needs to be taken off. This is a rough guess of where it's going to be.

We're going to try to get Sam to come over tomorrow so that we can figure out what to do with the wings. It would be great to have those finished . . . or at least started.
