I've spent a little more time on the project in the last few days. I drilled the F-634 seal belt anchors to the F-705 lower bulkhead assembly. I drilled the right half of each pair first and then bolted it in place. I fabricated a 3/16" shim to get the correct distance and then clamped all the pieces together to hold it to the bulkhead. I was able to drill the anchors by using the prepunched hole in the bulkhead as a guide.
