Bottom Skins Complete

Received the new quick-disconnect terminals and replaced the bad ones. Then I final-installed the pitot tube into the wing and hooked up the plumbing and the electrical. Had to uninstall and reinstall the aileron push tube so that I could get my hands in there.

 

Reinstalled and torqued the aileron push tube in the right wing and installed the aileron trim. Getting those springs on is tricky. I also took the time to bend the actuator arm aft a bit. I just saw a picture on VAF where someone’s springs had almost worn completely through the push tube. Plenty of clearance now. No rubbing.

 

Riveted the nut plates for the right wing inboard fairings and inspections plates.

 

Almost done! Just the wingtips left to do.
