Installation of rear instrument panel
Installation of flaperon trim adjuster handle & rod
Assembly of floor cross tubes to floor tube
Installation of floor tube assembly

For the installation of the rear seat belt, some holes had to be drilled into the root tube.

We also installed the flaperon trim adjuster plate, but we will leave the installation of the handle and rod for later, after the painting is completed.


 
Installation of rear instrument panel.  Actually, it is held with tie-wraps.  The altimeter is showing an incorrect altitude and will have to be replaced.
Assembly of floor cross tubes to floor tube and installation of floor tube assembly.  This plane is getting longer!
Beginning of the installation of front window tubes.
Installation of rudder return pulley (not really visible on this picture).
