Today I drilled the snap bushing holes and installed the nutplates on F-705D. The next step was to Cleco the F-705A, D, and F bulkhead components together which I did. Since I'm going to install a tip-up canopy I had to cut a slot into the F-705G angle. I was able to mark it up by using the slot in the F-705D&F parts. I got both of them cut out and smoothed, they are designed to provide room for the canopy latch fingers when the canopy is closed.
