Compression strut brackets

Today I mounted all the fittings (see above right) onto the spars (see below). Then I adjusted the carry through (see right) sticking out of the fuselage where the spar’s slide on to. I now have 2″ sticking out.

Then I cut the 8 compression struts to the right length, so that the 2 spars line up perfectly with the carry through on the fuselage.
Drilled all the holes for the rivets that will hold the struts onto the spars.
Just need to get a few new rivets as the ones I have are too short.

More tomorrow 🙂
