Default Fuselage/firewall tip - do the rudder bearing block first

I just got done with some gymnastics and have a tip for RV-14 fuselage builders. When you get to page 27-02 step 4, stop and flip ahead a few pages to page 33-05 step 3. This would have been much easier to do with the F-14104 support angle anywhere other than riveted to the firewall inside the fuselage with the side skins in place.

Happy building, everyone!

Default Different holes on the F-14104

Thanks for the heads up. I'll grab those parts and match drill the holes now.

An observation, the holes the plans specified to match-drill to on the F-14104 (33-05 Step 3) are not the same holes for installation (33-06 Fig 1). They're probably equally spaced apart.

Edited: I see the edge alignment now.
