Day 17 - May 9, 2015

TF4 worked on many tasks today including progress on the fuel system, the installation of the side vents and rudder pedals, as well as the assembling of the tires and wheels.  As for the fuel system, the gascolator was installed and most of the fuel lines were bent and put in place with the right torque. 

The rudder pedals were assembled and temporarily installed.  After a lot of adjusting and fitting, the side vents were riveted to the fuselage and they look great. 

As for the landing gear, the wheel halves, discs, and hubs were all assembled in the right order and they look great as well!  Work on the wing spars was also done.  The attach angles on the spar were riveted on, and they will later have the wing ribs assembled to them.

Stay tuned for next week!
