Re: airspeed indicator and flap torque tubes

Although I'd hate to 'break' the lower skin at that location and put another inspection hole there I can't see how else you could do any repairs there. The location is far away from the inspection hole between rib R and J to be feasible, I think. Or...in case of a needed repair get a recip saw and t...

Rib J

Still wondering, after reading manual, why I can't place Rib J BEFORE wing close out.... My thinking is a much better (open) access to Rib R and Rib J for laminating it up.

Pedal

hi,
would anybody have an extra Right Pedal by any chance? :)

Since I am missing that one there should be somebody out there who has one too many...right? :idea:

Not in a hurry, still far to go before needing it for flight!

Thanks,
John

Re: New builder Express CT

Jim, I thank you for your kind offer and really can't wait to take you up on it! That would be awesome for us. :D At the moment though, I'm working in TX, but I hope even this year to be home for a while and I most certainly would appreciate it. Been digging through 3 binders of building manual so f...
