Wed 28 March 2007

Spent the first part of the day fighting to get the nose wheel axel and brackets to all go together. Then the front locations could be finally set.
Then time to guess where the gear leg goes and make a random hole saw location - got it roughly right....
Starting to look more encouraging, continued trimming the nose section for turning clearances
Also marked up the nose leg fairing for trimming.
The problem is the stops on the front of the gear weldment (which provide the turning stops) were rubbing on full left turn on the nose section. More adjustment (read re-drilling of the forward brackets) and moving the fairing tail tip down about 1/8" and things look better.
Dad spent the majority of the day cleaning up and sanding back the excess resin on the empennage fairing - slow and boring, but needs to be sorted.
