I spoke to Sterling in tech support and he gave me the part numbers for split floor cover at the base of the rear bulkhead cover.

Thanks. Does anyone have a sketch of this change?

Besides the two F parts are there any nut plates, rivets, etc. included? Am surprised there is not a formal revision reflecting this "change" - or maybe I'm not surprised.

When i talked to Sterling, whatever section he was looking at took long to load up in his computer because of actual photographs. I should of asked for section number.

Will be calling Monday to get the SB parts for the wings and bering bracket. If the bulkhead is available I'll get it and post to this thread.

Just got the complete plans CD. Found the drawings and part numbers in Section 42C. Also the information for the tailcone stiffner for ADAHRS is in that Section. The tailcone stiffner information is on Vans Revision webpage but not the baggage compartment mods. Though I haven't ordered them yet the baggage comp. looks pretty straight forward once you get F-00081 and F-00083. Couldn't see anything esle needed other than some AN507C832R8 screws and AN526C832R8 screws.

Default Bulhead Cover

Surely if you are not going to remove the tank, the bulkhead cover also needs modification. I only see mention of the floor cover in these exchanges. Am I missing something?

Maybe.... it depends on what you are willing / able to do.

Even when we did remove the tank and bulkhead for an inspection, we never crawled into the tail cone.
because of that, now we remove all screws above the level of the fuel tank, from the bulkhead. Then because the bulkhead is corrugated, you can roll/lay it back on top of the fuel tank and get a good look inside the tail cone.

The split baggage floor allows inspecting all of the control system (though it does require use of a mirror to check the portion that is located under the fuel tank... but very doable)

Thanks for this information. Does rolling the corrugated bulkhead over the tank give enough space to do a cable tension assessment?
