I will be installing a forward tilting canopy. As a
result, I am (mostly) following the CH601XL plans for the front fuselage
This is to hold the instrument bulkhead straight during the
installation of the top skin:
The following picture is out of place, but well, I'm working on this
page! That one of my two cabin flood lights. installed it
under the two baggage compartment bulkhead tubes.
I installed nut plates so the top skin will be removable. I made
myself a jig by tapping the no 6 hole in a nut plate. Then, it was
easy to attach the screw and position it so I drill directly in the two
side holes. (I predrilled all center holes to 9/64"). The jig
nut plate was replaced at about 20 holes. oh! This is a time
consuming task! It took several hours to complete installation.
