Front Landing Gear fittings

Worked on the front gear fittings today. As you remember, there was a doubler that needed to be attached to the fitting. I suspect that the original piece was brazed, but I decided to weld it together. When that was finished, the tab was bent to the 44 degree angle needed to accept the landing gear wires. Then, the attach points were drilled.

Here is the fitting in place. I did not drill the holes for the gear legs yet. That will come later.

The rear fitting is original.

Plus, another wire was made. Two more to go!
