Continued assembly and did a bit of painting

Clecoed then riveted the sub-panel assembly to the fuselage.

 

Riveted nut plates into the wiring channel. Painted the assembly and later installed it into the fuselage after the paint dried.

 

Match drilled the forward and aft canopy decks to the left and right longerons. Then dimpled the holes in the canopy decks and machine countersunk the holes in the longerons. Painted the canopy decks as well as the panel brackets and wiring supports.

 

Machine countersunk all the holes in the instrument panel frame. Riveted the instrument panel angles, nut plates, and flange doubler to the frame. Painted the assembly.

 

Ground one of the corners off of the fresh air vents to match up to the flange that connects it to the fuselage and naca duct.
