After all this work I find out I made a mistake. Instruction call for clecoing the towers to the forward floor, well. the holes did NOT line up!!
Did Van's misalign the holes? Do I have a bad floor? Is this common? What is the fix? On to VAF, emergency situation! Find my answer rather quickly. David Dormier has his build on here and he made the same mistake I did. I had the floor angles installed improperly....
This aft bracket has 6 holes and is correct.
This one only has 5 which is WRONG!!
Here we go....
Drill out rivets, remove the carefully torqued bolts, etc etc!
Ok...that's better! The holes line up.
Almost had a heart attack.
Started final riveting!! FINALLY!
