Installed Crotch-Strap Anchors
Today I helped my sister-in-law move so I didn't have a whole lot of time for the airplane. I did manage to get both crotch-strap anchors installed. This is pretty easy but there are lots of pop-rivets involved. The crotch-straps (part of the seat-belts) slide between these two pieces and a bolt secures the strap in place. You can see that the straps come up right behind the stick.
I also made both elevator pushrods. This is the long pushrod that runs from the bellcrank (just behind the baggage compartment) back to the empennage.
