Decided to trim the tail post yesterday. I made this post extra long with the idea of trimming it to size once the rudder and stabilizer braces were in place. I used a coping saw to make the cut.
Then the shape was sanded with the belt sander and finished by hand...
...and given some varnish to finish it off.
Since we mixed up a batch of varnish, Glen gave the rear instrument panel its first coat.
We also made the front floorboard attach brackets. Since the lower longeron curves, the bracket must have an angle to match the wooden support.
More soon. Enjoy
