I'm working on my RV10 cabin top and am fitting in the center brace. On page 43-8 the instructions say to insert the cabin center brace into the fwd top skin and "slide the brace as far forward as it will go".
When I do that, the four holes on the top part of the brace no longer reach far enough for me to drill them into the cabin top! See here for proof:
There's room for me to slide the center brace back, BUT there's not much meat on the center brace to drill into behind the panel.
What should I do? Should I try to split the difference? Or should I try to fill in that area of the cabin top with structural filler before drilling through?
Would love some thoughts on how to proceed.
