Default fairing nut plate locations

On page 10-20 there is a nut plate location next to the leftmost nut plate and another one off the picture. The instructions don't show nut plates in those locations, but looking at the fairing installation section, it looks like nut plates are needed in those locations. What am I missing?

Those screw locations correspond to the fiberglass empenage fairing which needs to be match drilled using the holes in the aft fuselage, so the nutplates do not get installed until after that has been completed.

Sorry, I forgot to follow up on this.
470AD4 rivets is correct..... there is no reason for flush rivets in this area ( a future plans revision will reflect the change).

I will soon be at this step (17-03) and do not fully understand the remark. My plans and the revisions that exist at Vans have not been updated for this section.

Am i right in asuming that you should make it 59 3/8 but make sure to start from the inboard side and you will be ok?

Quote:
Wing pg 17-03 Step 4 The plans say to cut the J-channel to 59 3/8 inches. I and other, but apparently not all, have found this is too short as the end of the J-channel will not have sufficient edge margin for the last rivet Tom023 Drilling the single J-stiffener hole 5/8 from the inboard most edge of the J-stiffener on both sides and clecoing the inboard most J-stiffener hole instead of the outboard most hole should remove this problem. The length of 59 3/8 is correct. Rev 1 of page 17-03 and 17-04 will depict this -AB (Older Comments below) Recommend waiting to fabricate the J-channel until you have the skin and ribs assembled in the stand so a proper measurement can me made. Following Vans plans will definitely cause you to be short. AB

I cut my J channel stringers about 1/4" longer than the plans, then trimmed the long end after locating and match drilling. If you cut it per plans it will barely have ED on the most inboard and outboard rivets.

I am getting ready to start building the RV14 in a couple of weeks. Thanks to all those posting the gotchas. That is some really good info that I am sure is going to come in handy!

Hopefully it won't even be needed.
As early builders found plans errors, corrections were made.

Default RV14 build

John, welcome aboard. I have a 14 tail kit in progress in East Orlando by UCF. Private message me and we can connect. Having another 14 in town will be a good thing.
