Cut two center seat ribs for access openings - 3.5 Hrs.

Today I continued work on the seat ribs.

With the holes in the 4 center ribs enlarged, now you cleco and drill the F-716B plates in place. Then you cut a small section out of the rib. This puts an opening in the ribs that allows you to slip the control pushrod assembly into place. You'll see how it all works. These small removeable sections are riveted to the F-716B plates and will be held in place with bolts to put the seat rib back together.

I think the whole idea is rather ingenious. I don't think I would have thought of this or figured it out on my own. Amazing.
