Still Playing With Aft Canopy Deck
Today was a very busy day. Jaime and I had to take her car to the shop (the A/C is out in this 90+ degree 99.999% humidity weather!). I also had Orchestra rehearsal so I only had a couple of minutes to play around with the project. I did go out and look at the right aft canopy deck again.
I called Van's and asked them what their opinion was with the pre-loading I've mentioned in the previous days. They gave me their typical "don't worry about it" response. From messin' with it tonight, it seemed that the deck wasn't as pre-loaded as before...and when I checked it...sure enough, there's only the slightest hint of pre-loading. Huh?
I think what happend was I hadn't riveted the 704 vertical bars to the longeron. This seems to have straightened something out...'cause everything lines up now. Whatever. I'm just going to deal with it.
