April 16 through May 1, 2021 – Firewall frame and nose gear brace

After the break to attend Sun-n-Fun, work was started on the lower center of the firewall, mainly the nose gear bracing. May 1st I finished fabricating the engine mounts from the large Aluminum alloy square tube. After fashioning all four and re-measuring, everything was bang on save one where I realized one of the holes where the engine mount will ultimately slide into is off by about a tenth of an inch on one side, so I’ll likely need to order a one foot piece and create a replacement. Other than that booboo, it’s coming together nicely.
