Today I got a lot of work done. I mount ears my axles, and caliper brackets on the landing gear. Then I packed my wheel bearing and mounted the wheels on the axles. I am using the axles and wheels that I bought from someone. I cleaned the all up like new and I decided to order new brake pads. Once I turned the fuselage over, I cut and clecoed my floor panel. I also cut an oval hole in the f6 bulkhead for my should harnesses to pass through. I install a stiffening angle on the backside of the f6 bulkhead and another angle between the longerons to attach the shoulder harness to. Got a good days work in today

Yesterday I received my landing gear. I had been waiting for months to order it and I finally came across some money and pulled the trigger. I tore the cardboard off of it last night and today when I got home from work I drilled and installed the four 5/16 bolts. I had to flip it over to catch a peek. Tomorrow I will take my bottom skin and bend the 1/2 flange that goes in front of the gear then remove the gear and start fitting the bottom center section skin and floor supports.

Today I rolled both of my armrests at work and when I got home I trimmed and installed one of them. I am going to wait until I fab my forward interior panels to drill the holes that go through both. I went flying tonight and got a nice photo of the sunset. Perfect night
