Dad got multiple smaller jobs done today. First up was the fuel line vents.
A cutting disk in the lathe did the job and then the rough edges were turned down.
Next item was the 4 rudder pedal links. We ended up with 2 3/8" between holes.
Dad then moved back to the canopy latch mechanism.
We decided to drill the brackets and back drill the skin (vs the 'standard' way drilling through the skin first).
My limited input for the day was some forward cockpit structure. I drilled the forward brackets and match drilled the tip-up forward canopy skin.
