Bellcranking

The last 3 nights I’ve been fabricating, matching drilling, prepping and ┬áthe parts for the bellcrank rib substructure that attaches to the 706 bulkhead. I’ve had to pay close attention to drawing #26 for this structure as there are many intersecting parts; virtually each one with it’s own special way to attach to the other. Also after cursing Van’s for some apparently misaligned predrilled holes in F730, I discovered that the holes are actually asymmetrical in their layout and yours truly had cleco’d it on backwards. The holes aligned perfectly now. A little more drilling tonight and this bad boy gets thrown into the ever growing “To Be Primed” pile. I swear I am gonna spray paint this weekend. Sorry for the crappy photos. I only had the iphone with me this morning.

Notice the missing hole on the upper right of 730.
