Bafflling, Remounting Wingtips
Today I decided to really, REALLY start working on the baffling. I'm going to keep at it and just replace parts if I have to. This kit is the pits. It has to get done though. I trimmed the front ends and put the inward bends in.
Do yourself a favor...go to Jeff's RV-7A page, hit print...select landscape...and print that dad-gum thing. His pictures are a perfect supplement (replacement?) to the plans.
I also decided to remount the wingtips. I really dorked it up. The trailing edge of my wingtip was about ONE INCH lower than the neutral position of the ailerons. I kind of rushed through that (dumb me). I layed up some glass over the holes on the inside. I will fill the holes from the outer edge with flox.
I only did the bottoms. I'll do the tops tomorrow then fill everything.
