30 Oct 04 - Tunnel Cover Stuff


Not an extremely exciting day. We've got something of a list of things to go back and check after the tech inspection on the 28th, so we've started thinking about all those. Let's just finish this tunnel cover up so we can check it off the list, though.

After match drilling the hole, we pulled up the forward right seat floor to put the nutplate in. First time we've pulled these up, so that was exciting.

Done!

Interesting thing to note: don't try to put the tunnel cover back in when you're sitting inside the plane. The weight on the floorboards moves it around that it is difficult to get everything lined up. In retrospect, maybe it's not a good idea to be in the plane when you're match drilling this sort of stuff.
