More Seat Rib Nutplates
I started out today's work session by installing more nutplates in the seat ribs. Yes, I'm making everything here removeable. Why? Well, I'm told it's better to do it that way...we'll see. Right now I'm not thinking so, but we'll see. I spent an hour and a half on this. I ran out of single-lug nutplates so I need to order some more of those. In this picture you see one of the seat pans with a few screws in it.
Then I started fitting these gussets (Jaime says I've been saying that word too much lately!). Van's has you drill them first and then trim them for the tip-up, so that's the process I started.
