Buy a C-Thru ruler like this and it makes drawing those center-lines a snap.

6 inch one shown, the 18 inch one is also vey useful.

You can also measure and scale dimensions for feature locations from the drawings. This has worked well for some feature locations in question and can be a valuable reference or at least a check and balance. Good Luck.

I ended up doing just that--measured the actual drawing and applied to the scale of the actual part.

I was going to cut off the spar flange for the SB 14-01-31 and decided to check the interference before making the cut.
I fail to see how the flange interfere. There is also good access to set the rivet.

The below picture shows how my modified HS-405. Trimming the spar flange seems completely unnecessary when using the HS-405 modification instead of the new HS-00005.

What am I missing ?
