Firewall

January 26th, Feb 2nd 15h

We started working on the fuselage.  The first part is the firewall.  Which is made from stainless steel. It had very sharp edges, so we needed to be very careful in smoothing the edges.  Then we prepped the firewall and all the stiffeners that attaches to it, matched drilled, deburred, dimpled and counter sink as needed.

The next weekend, we primed and riveted all the parts, except for the aux fuel pump doubler.  We don’t need this part for fuel injected engines. Also, the firewall recess was not riveted for the time being, so that we have access.
