Default Mid Seat Rails

I was doing a bit of organizing preparing for Avionics install... I came across some long lost parts, the Mid Seat Rails support that you install outboard on top of the gear weldment.

Plans have you make them on Page 28-16 Step 1 and 2. States you set them aside until after the gear legs have been fitted and drilled. Well I did all that awhile back so I should probably go ahead and mount these, I can take a guess at the hardware but would rather see what the plans call for. Having problems finding that though... searched the Fuselage and Finishing PDFs... can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

IIRC it's a missing step in the plans. Just grab some AN3 hardware and press.

Default AN3-3A with std washer

I just installed mine after finding them on shelf as well. It gave about 2 theads showing past nyloc. I installed mine with nut on top, much easier. Note I could not find in build manual as well, but didn't spend alot of time looking.

Thanks for the reminder... I think mine are still sitting on a shelf as well.
I also found F-1043D-R/L sitting on my shelf. On pg 39-8, it says "When F-1043D-L/R are later installed...", but searching through the PDF, I don't see it called out anywhere else.

I think that's another missing step. I installed mine at the same time I installed a lot of the misc panels and covers that I had intentionally left off until I was ready to close everything up for good.

Figured it was just AN3's but wanted to be sure. Actually got the bolts and nuts on this morning, however tightening them is going to be a different beast all together. Might have to recruit my kids with their small hands.

Justin, thatís why I installed with nylocs up. I was able to get the tips of my fingers to install the bolt up. I was going through your awesome build site. Are you going with the std vans cowl?

Yup this is with the nylocs up! I can't get the wrench underneath to hold the AN3. I've already recruited a friend to come by and with her small hands we should be able to get it done.

I am using a standard cowl, what a process it's been. My fault for doing so many mods but it's getting there. I sort of sidelined it to finish up the engine connections and some minor projects as well as start prepping the interior for Avionics which should be here in a month or so.

Glad to know people are looking at the site outside of family and friends!
