W-00017 Landing Light Mount Bracket
On Page 17-06, step 5, the plans say to rivet the subject bracket into the outboard leading edge skins. It isn't immediately obvious, but the brackets do indeed have an up and down. On first glance they look like they are symmetrical vertically, but they aren't because the hole for the light is offset slightly. Figure 2 on that same page sort of looks like the hole for the landing light should be offset toward the bottom of the wing. It's very subtle in the figure, but I think this is the correct orientation. Seems weird that the plans are silent about the orientation when it would be very easy to insert them upside down. Can anyone corroborate that the hole for the light is indeed offset toward the bottom of the wing?
